Directed and shot in collaboration between artist Alan Kain, photographer Scott Jones and the Larkhall-based Clydesdale Colts Cycling Club, the film showcases the skills and dedication of the group of young talented cyclists exploring the route between their club hut in Larkhall and their mountain bike trails in the ancient woodland of the Chatelherault, and will inspire folk to take up their bikes and explore the routes at Chatelherault themselves. Refreshments provided.
12 noon - 1pm: Free all ages and abilities guided cycle ride. Own bike and helmet required, ride will be mostly on footpaths - suitable for most bikes apart from racing bikes. Meet in front of Chatelherault visitor centre. Ride length approx. 8km ride which will include short hilly sections taken at a slow pace. It will take in some of the recently upgraded pathways in the park and highlight the new Make Your Way Chatelherault trails and signage.
