Several riders and several riders siblings attended the first of many “Sprocket Rocket” events in Enniscorthy on Saturday last. This course is a CI governed initiative and is the case in most promotional events in cycling it is being lead by Pat Whitney of Slaney CC. Pat reminded everyone that the “Sprocket Rocket” idea came from Australia initially and was responsible for discovering the talents of one Robbie McEwan.
Pat has already covered the basics of brake usage, bike balance, cornering, riding in a group, etc. All the kids attending receive a bag, a t-shirt and a helmet for the pricely sum of €10. This continues next Saturday at 2.30pm at the back of Donoghues Garage in a well excluded spot.
