Cheshire pupils improve cycling skills

The 12 to 15 year-olds from Upton-by-Chester High School went on 12 courses funded by Cheshire West and Chester Council as an ‘essential’ follow up to Level 2 Bikeability cycle training during their final year at primary school.

The pupils were all “highly enthusiastic and capable”, our Regional Manager Steve Kyriacou said, whose instructors delivered the Level 3 Bikeability course programme.

The school’s admin assistant Martin Boothman said all pupils had benefited greatly from the course and praised the instructors for their “exemplary” professionalism.

Bikeability Level 3 enhances the basic skills and educates cyclists to make journeys in a variety of more complex traffic conditions competently, confidently and consistently.

Those completing Level 3 will be able to demonstrate the skills and understanding to be able to make a trip safely to and from school, work or leisure on busy roads, using complex junctions and road features. The training deals with hazard perception, making ‘on-the-move’ risk assessments and planning routes for safer cycling.
