Session information

Thursday afternoon sessions begin at:

  • 4:15pm for all groups

At each venue a BCG Volunteer will control a marshalling area between the car park and the bicycle area, for the duration of the session.


BCG Leaders use the WhatsApp service to communicate with other leaders and members for immediate information.

BCG Leaders will use email, Google Groups, and the Facebook page for more general and non-urgent information.

Please ensure that where possible, members or guardians can access these services

Want to help? Please do! BCG needs more parents to assist this expanding group.

Volunteers will need to complete a “working with children” check and be willing to undertake an MTBA training course, which will be organised by BCG.
