The School has ten bikes, which are stored in an area, which is equipped for their cleaning and general maintenance. Major repairs are carried out professionally at a local cycle shop. In the interests of safety, the School also provides the pupils with helmets and gloves, which are compulsory requirements on rides. Pupils are invited to take advantage of foul-weather clothing and rucksacks, which are provided by the school.
The rides are always accompanied by a qualified Off-Road Leader who is assisted by another member of staff. All rides are inspected by the Leader in advance to determine their suitability. A variety of trails from which to choose have been developed in SE Hants and West Sussex. This year, we have been able to enjoy not only the colourful foliage, which we take for granted in this part of the country, but also an unusual amount of wildlife, especially the many deer which the boys have spotted on the rides. Mountain biking is not all blood, sweat and tears!
Transport to the venues is provided by the School’s mini-bus and trailer. The season for Mountain Biking runs from March to late November, throughout which the pupils have the opportunity to ride once every three or four weeks.
