On Tues, 9 November we were fortunate to be able to offer a limited number of places on a Level 3 Bikeability course delivered by the South Ribble Borough Council's Active Health Team.

The Level 3 course equips participants with the skills needed to stay safe in more challenging urban situations.  This advanced course leads on from Level 1 & 2 Bikeability, which pupils usually complete at primary school, and teaches how to ride and navigate complex roads and respond confidently.

The course was aimed specifically at Year 7 and 8 pupils, with the practical course taking place on roads in the local area, under supervision.

The course was 2 hours in duration and pupils learned to:

•    Prepare for a journey
•    Understand advanced road positions
•    Pass queuing traffic
•    Perceive and deal with hazards
•    Understand driver blind spots
•    React to hazardous road surfaces
•    Navigate roundabouts
•    Understand multi-lane roads and
•    Traffic lights

Well done to the pupils that took part:
 
Harriet H, Layla H, Chloe R, Caleb H, Corbyn H, Caitlin P, Ellis T, Seth L, Tom M, Cavan C, Declan D, Christopher C
