Those who follow our Facebook Group will have seen postings regarding the kids' development series that the club organised this summer.

I can follow this up with a report on a Special Time Trial comprising one lap of Milton Keynes Bowl. Suzanne Golder, our Club Development Secretary reports "North Bucks are so proud to have had the first ever childrens fun TT at the end of the summer skills school. Designed, not for competition, but for personal progression we look forward to seeing times change over the years as these lovely children develop. PB's all the way! (Suzanne)"
