Today saw a successful ATSA Cycle Speedway 'taster' session take place at Astley and Tyldesley Cycling club. Children from several local schools took part in the event which was led by Mr W Evans (Coach at Astley and Tyldesley Cycling Club) and Mr M Hack (Coach at Astley and Tyldesley Cycling Club and also Club Secretary).
Children from St. George's Central, Sacred Heart, St. Philip's, Tyldesley Primary and Holy Family took part in the session. The children did a number of cycling warm up activities, before progressing to taking part in a number of races.
I would like to thank Mr Evans and Mr Hack from Astley and Tyldesley Cycling Club for hosting this event on behalf of ATSA. Following the session, ATSA has secured a further taster session for next year and a competition for schools!
For more information about how you or your child can become involved with Astley and Tyldesley Cycling Club please contact Mr M Hack on 07905413396 or look on their website.
The picture above shows the children who took part in the session with Mr Evans and Mr Hack.
