Bikeability - CL kids pedal their way to success

Posted On: 30 October 2020

Congratulations to the 43 children who attended and completed the Bikeability courses recently. As a school we continue to actively promote and encourage our children to develop important life skills such as learning to cycle safely on the road. The children attended the two day courses in small groups with trained Bikeability Instructors – who again commented upon how well-behaved our children were. Like last year, as a school we had to ask for further cycle courses as we were heavily oversubscribed.

Bikeability was great fun. We learnt lots of new skills about how to keep safe on the roads. I really loved riding in the pouring rain!

The children reported that they enjoyed spending time on the playground practising the skills before venturing out onto the major roads in small groups. Notably there were a large number of positive comments about the sense of achievement when cycling around Church Langley. Many of the children would have liked more time practising their skills, some suggested making the course 4 days instead of two. Those who were not yet ready to tackle the main roads spent extra time cycling within the safe confines of the school site. All 43 children who attended passed Level 1, with 39 children succeeding with Level 2; they recieved a badge and a certificate from the two instructotrs.
