Year 2 Learn to Ride!
All children in year 2 recently took part in Cycle Leeds' Learn to Ride programme which aims to increase children's confidence on bikes and teach them to learn how to ride independently.
The children initially were introduced to balance bikes and were soon flying around the playground pedalling their own bikes and balancing on their own. Over the 2 weeks that Cycle Leeds were in school, 55 out of 60 children in year 2 successfully learned how to ride a bike without support. This is a fantastic lifeskill for these children to have gained at such a young age and will hopefully encourage all of them to take up cycling as a means of transport and to simply have lots of fun and adventure whilst keeping safe.
