Children from Great Totham Primary School have thanked the Safer Essex Roads Partnership’s Bikeability instructors.

Bikeability is cyclist training for the 21st century, designed to give the next generation the skills and confidence to ride their bikes on today’s roads.

At different levels of the scheme, children learn how to:

  • Develop early cycle handling and awareness skills (Bikeability Balance)
  • Master pedalling (Bikeability Learn to Ride)
  • Prepare for on-road cycling (Level 1)
  • Cycle on single-lane roads and simple junctions (Level 2)
  • Handle busier streets, complex junctions and roundabouts (Level 3)

Every school in Essex is given the opportunity to have cycle training – including Great Totham Primary School.

Following the sessions, children from the school wrote hand-crafted letters to SERP’s Bikeability instructors to say thank you.

One pupil described the training as a ‘great experience’, while another thanked the instructors for ‘teaching us how to ride our bikes skilfully’.
