What's it all about...
In order for your child to take part, you will need to complete the consent form sent home before Easter and return it to school by Friday 20th April. If you need another letter, please send a message in to Miss McKay. The training is FREE.
Ideally your child will use their own bike for the training, but bikes can be loaned to those without. Information about requesting the loan of these items is included in the letter sent home.
This course is suitable for children who can already ride a bike, and are pretty stable, i.e. be able to look behind whilst riding, without wobbling, and hold a signal for about 3 seconds. If your child cannot yet ride, you can advise Bikeability in the permission slip and they may be able to teach them during their time in school.
The cycling will continue whatever the weather, so please send your child with warm and waterproof clothing. Gloves are a good idea. We suggest that pupils wear trousers or tracksuit bottoms when training and, if the weather is warm, get them to bring sunscreen and a water bottle.
