Last Thursday and Friday the 6th class pupils had cycling training. This was coached by Leeroy and Richard. They taught us how to behave when cycling on the road. This training involved how to act at a junction, how to do an emergency stop, how to signal and what side of the road you should be cycling on. The training took place for nearly the whole two days so we didn’t have to do any work!!
One of the reasons why we took this cycling training was to help us when cycling on the road or on our way to school especially when we have narrow roads and busy traffic so we have to be careful. Another reason this training is useful is in preparation for our cycle to Tulla later this year. We really enjoyed this cycling training and are looking forward to the trip to Tulla
