Last Sunday evening we hosted a British Cycling “2012 Go-ride Games” event in the car park at Tesco, Heanor.
Local youngsters spent three hours working to learn and then practicing track racing skills like those mastered by to Gold medal level by Victoria Pendleton and Sir Chris Hoy.
The afternoon was made extra special by a visit by ex-Heanor Gate student Leon Taylor, with his Olympic torch.
As the Games closed youngsters were presented with Go-ride Games medals, certificates and goody bags.
If you missed out on the Games but would like to have a go at cycling then Heanor Clarion meets most Wednesday evenings at Aldercar Community Language College, for up-to-date details visit heanorclarion.org.uk.
