Bikeability gets Y7 cyclists roadsafe

Bikeability cycline course at Bridgewater School

This month saw the return of Bikeability to Bridgewater School and an opportunity for Year 7 students to improve their cycle control and riding skills.

The 2-day Level 2 Young Cyclist Training Course, delivered by Salford LEA, consists of an initial cycle check and assessment of riding ability, following the completion of which, pupils proceed to on-road riding sessions with a qualified instructor incorporating the practise of basic manoeuvres at local junctions. All of which build confidence, improve our young cyclists’ bicycle control and give them the skills to:

  • Cycle safely and responsibly
  • Identify and respond to hazards
  • Start and stop on-road journeys
  • Maintain suitable riding positions
  • Share the road with others and communicate with other road users
  • Comply with signals, signs and road markings
  • Manage risk when cycling
  • Negotiate junctions.

An annual event at Bridgewater School, the Bikeability course continues to offer a fantastic way to help riders become roadsafe.

Bridgewater will not only help you to reach your goals, it will enable you to exceed them.
