Port Edgar Watersports Centre staged a bike festival last Saturday and despite the early morning downpours around 20 people took part in a number of bike-related activities.

The centre’s instructors, led by Ralph Jessop, took the youngsters, through their paces at the nearby pump track - The VAT Run - and offered a variety of skills coaching and advice on how to maintain your bike.

The centre offers courses as part of their summer club, with weekly mountain bike sessions being staged for eight to 15 year-olds on Tuesdays, from 6.30pm-8.30pm.

Ralph said: ‘‘These are exciting times at Port Edgar and we are really looking to expanding our bike courses.
