Community picnic and obstacle race

On Saturday 21st August, Lubbesthorpe Alive CIC will be staging a Community Picnic for all residents.

As part of this event, The LocalGo Team will be staging an obstacle race for teams of four people, one of whom must be over 18.

The aim is to transport several objects across a given distance, without touching the ground.

The team that records the fastest time on the day will receive a £30 voucher for Rutland Cycling for each team member from the Drummond Estate, a £50 credit voucher for ArrivaClick, and a Ride Like the Wind Cycling T-Shirt for each person.

In addition, when two teams compete against each other the winning team will also receive a prize.

The number of teams may be limited to 10, so to avoid disappointment please log in to LocalGo: www.localgo.co.uk/login

We also have a very short survey (2 questions!) on potential free bike events that could be staged in New Lubbesthorpe, which we would really appreciate your thoughts on: New Lubbesthorpe Residents Big Bike Revival

If you have questions, please contact us at info@localgo.co.uk
