New mountain bikes for H&IoW Wing RAF Air Cadets Adventure Training!

The Connaught Trust awarded £5000 to the Hampshire & Isle of Wight Wing RAF Air Cadets for mountain bikes, helmets and associated equipment in March 2023.


The unit applied for a grant to be able to offer cadets and staff in Hampshire & Isle of Wight Wing the opportunity to mountain bike in and around Hampshire., and to gain confidence in riding and team building and leadership skills.


Over the last few years a number of the staff have become qualified to lead mountain biking and would like to make use of these qualifications to get more cadets and staff out experiencing mountain biking in the local area. The unit are able to transport these bikes around the wing following a separate grant from The Connaught Trust in 2022 for the purchase of a multi function trailer that carries mountain bikes and canoes.
