Just wanted to say a huge thank you to your team for the training my son has been given at school for riding his bike on the road. He’s a year 5 pupil and is now so confident at riding on the road, he goes to school every day on his bike. Thank you again!
My son is in year 11 and did the course. Over lockdown him and his friends cycled miles all over the countryside and still do. They had the extra confidence to explore and plan ahead. Their maps are generally online, but all went on to do Duke of Edinburgh Bronze award. This is not isolated. Many parents said this is wellbeing at its best. No phones, fresh air and enjoying the countryside through exercise.
