Grassroots Training Booking Form 2019 (Updated)

We have had a good response so far, but we are still a little short on numbers in some groups.

 To fill up all the available spaces we need 3 more people for level 1, 2 more for level 2 and 3 more for level 4. Group 3 is full. Each group will have a maximum of 5 riders.

 We have had a fantastic feedback from the first two training sessions that took place last weekend, with many commenting that they would love to receive more training of this kind.

 So If you could please spread the word to your clubs and post on social media and try and fill up these last few remaining spaces, it would be greatly appreciated.

 I have attached the booking form and poster for reference.

 Any questions please do not hesitate to ask.

 Kind Regards,
