Bro Ddyfi Leisure Centre are gearing up for the Olympics this summer by holding a Cycling Family Fun Day on 26 May with a wide range of activities encouraging people to get on the saddle.
The free event is the perfect warm-up before the Olympic Torch Relay passes through Machynlleth two days later, with the morning and afternoon sessions allowing children the opportunity to try out trikes and go-karts, watch unicyclists perform and have a go on the stunt ramp.
There will also be an exhibition of classic bikes put on by the National Cycle Exhibition, Nintendo Wii bike games to play and the chance to create a healthy drink on a smoothie bike. Children just learning to ride will also have the opportunity to take part in cycling proficiency lessons.
Adults can get information on joining their local cycling club, give their bike a safety check and tune up or undertake a 35 mile peloton social ride arranged by Hafren Cycle Club.
For the younger children not quite ready to tackle two wheels, there will also be a bouncy castle and puppet show, as well as cycling-themed crafts and face painting, and local residents can also cool down with a free swimming session.
The evening will see things heat up when visitors can put their name down to compete in roller racing, where competitors race against each other on static bikes linked to a laptop, with prizes for male and female winners in the under 14s, juniors and seniors competitions.
With a licensed bar and food all day, it is the perfect way for your family to get into the Olympic spirit.
The event begins at 10am, with the roller racing competition kicking off at 4.30pm. More information can be found out by calling 01654 703300 or visiting broddyfileisure.powys.gov.uk.
