Priory pupils become better cyclists
25 September 2019
On Tuesday a group of our pupils took up the opportunity to make themselves better, safer cyclists.
We advise that all pupils who cycle to school complete the Level 3 Bikeability course. This two hour course is offered free through school and is run by South Ribble Sports Development. Training takes place on public roads, under supervision.
Level 3 teaches pupils how to cycle on multi-lane roads and use complex junctions.
At Level 3 you can
- Prepare for a journey
- Understand advanced road positioning
- Pass queuing traffic
- Perceive and deal with hazards
- Understand driver blind spots
- React to hazardous road surfaces
For further information go to www.bikeablity.org.uk
The next course will be offered again at Priory on Mon, 7 October. Pupils should register their interest with Mr Bullock, Head of PE & Sports, by next Weds 2 October (parents can email email@example.com).
A reminder that a helmet is compulsory. Bikes must be in good working order, with working brakes and pumped up tyres.
