A day out for the whole family

Alongside the Bike4Bart Cycling event, the Andrew Simpson Watersports Centre, also based at the National Sailing Academy, threw its doors open to the public, offering a variety of free land and water-based activities for all ages.

Supporters came down for breakfast to wave off our Bike4Bart riders then signed up for the activities which will include sailing, kayaking and mega SUP taster sessions to name a few, inflatables, scooter races, a BBQ and a raffle: culminating in a great fun day for all of the family!

To find out how to be part of the Bike4Bart Family Fun Day 2019, please contact our event organiser, Sally Turner - sally@andrewsimpsonfoundation.org.
