Last summer, 37 children took part in a successful series of Bikeability courses run by the Cycle Chilterns project. The courses took place over two weeks in Tring and Amersham.
For those of you not familiar with Bikeability, it is the new 'cycling proficiency'. Two levels were offered during the week, with Level 1 covering basic bike skills in a playground and Level 2 covering road skills. The course aims to give children more confidence and awareness of being on the road.
Many parents signed up for the course to give them a bit of peace of mind for when their children cycle with their friends on the road, arming them with the right skills and increasing their awareness.
