Two wheel confidence
Over the past few months Groundwork NE & Cumbria have been delivering bike confidence sessions for children across our area, to support them to cycle more confidently.
Sessions have been delivered in a variety of locations including Chopwell Wood, Blackhill & Consett Park and at the very well attended Consett Cycling Festival. They have included a number of fun activities to help children with their cycling – this has ranged from helping young children to understand how to balance and ride without stabilisers to work with older children around road safety and cycle skills.
Over 100 children between the ages of five and 12 years have taken part in these activities, with some great success stories.
Don’t worry if you missed these, there are more sessions at the end of August. Each one lasts 45 minutes and it is free to take part, though booking is essential. Children need to bring their own bike and a helmet.
