This week year 5 took part in Bikeability, a programme which teaches us how to safely ride our bikes on roads. Markuss and Hayden have written about their experiences below.
“We had to bring in our own bikes, and sometimes we had to share with other people to make sure everybody had a turn. When we first started practising we rode our bikes around our playground to learn how to get ready on our bikes and stop quickly. The next time we did Bikeability we went on the road and learnt how to do a U-turn and a J-turn safely. On the third day after all of our training we had a ride around the local roads to see how much we had learnt. We all passed Bikeability and we can now ride our bikes on the road safely. We wish we could do Bikeability again, everybody enjoyed themselves!”
