Cycling as a leisure activity, a sport and a means of travel is equally suitable for the very young, the very old, male and female, and riders with a disability. It is universally popular. We are able to help just about anyone!
The administration was also faultless and placed little extra work on already busy school staff- much appreciated. All in all, a thoroughly enjoyable, worthwhile and lifelong learning experience.
I have been teaching for over 30 years and have been involved in many initiatives involving outside agencies- I strongly believe that bike training that properly prepares children to ride safely on the road is one of the most worthwhile. These young people WILL ride their bikes on roads for which they deserve proper training. it would be negligent of us not to be preparing them properly; a truly important life skill. The roads around our school do not present the easiest and most accessible training environment- your instructors had clearly evaluated the situation very thoroughly and maximised the opportunities. They even ordered good weather!
