Bikeability Y5 and Y6 - September 2019

  • Sept. 16th - Sept. 20th 2019

    This course is about gaining practical skills and understanding how to cycle on today’s roads. Bikeability gives everyone the skills and confidence for all kinds of cycling. Our children completed levels 1 and 2 which are designed to develop skills for pedaling along, using gears, looking all around and behind, controlling the bike and sharing space with pedestrians and other cyclists. The children were accompanied onto the roads to practise recognising typical hazards, letting others know what you are about to do, knowing where to ride on the road and passing parked vehicles and side roads. The children had great fun whilst learning their new skills and feel much more confident riding their bikes safely.

    The children then took part in a bike ride down the Quayside of Newcastle and Gateshead.
