All the 5th Classes recently completed a seven week course on cycling safety. Each week two tutors took the children through all the elements to enable them to cycle safely in their locality. They started off with the basics – bike, self and weather checks; and progressed to signalling, making left and right turns, right of way and many other features of road safety. The seven weeks covered everything from rules of the road to stopping and starting, road positioning, overtaking and traffic manoeuvres. The emphasis of the course is on safety through control of the bike and awareness of surroundings.
