Year 4, 5 and 6 took part in the cycle training programme, Bikeability.
Bikeability is the new cycle training for the 21st century, designed to give the next generation of children the skills and confidence to ride their bikes on today’s roads. To get their Bikeability award, girls will be instructed on how to ride their bikes to the Government-approved National Standard for Cycle Training, which sets out the training and skills essential for making cycling trips in today’s road conditions.
Sian, Year 6, said, "Doing Bikeability really helped us be more confident on the roads. Road safety is very important and that is why we must always use it. I do look forward to using my new independent skills when out with my family. The instructors, (Dave and Hayley) were super, caring for our safety. I hope that every girl who has the opportunity to do Bikeability will do so and hope they enjoy it as much as I did.
Jaz, Year 6, said "Bikeability has really taught me how to ride on roads, from looking behind me when starting to signalling while going down a hill, it was so much fun. They taught us lots of new skills and in the last lesson, we went riding on the roads. I have learnt so much that I didn’t know, I had so much fun, I would love to do it again."
