Sunday 7th December 2014 Coed Y Brenin Christmas Market – Skills Test and Family Ride.

The club had a Tombola at the Christmas Market at Coed y Brenin to raise funds and a big thanks goes to all who donated prizes, set up and manned the stall.

Despite a damp start to the day it dried out for the ride but sadly not for most of the time when we were doing the skills test.  A brave Nikki and Ezra looked after this for us and despite the cold still had enough energy to play some Carols to make us feel like Christmas. They are a very talented family.

Those riding set off after lunch in two groups on a cold but now dry day.  The younger riders went off to ride the Minortaur and the older ones headed for Dreamtime and then climbed to the top of the Adam’s Family completed the first 3 descents then cut across to False teeth to rattle back down to the river. The teenagers thought Bugsy was too easy so set off to climb back up to ride Uncle Fester again before returning to the warmth of the visitor centre and some warm drinks and more food.

Thanks to everyone who helped on the day, gave prizes and joined us on the ride.
