The second group from class 4 spent the day cycling round school and the village learning skills and putting then into practice.
Eric explained about road junctions and how to keep safe on the road and we were impressed with their attitudes and abilities.
Interesting to learn that the ‘old’ rule of cycling just 30cm away from the curb is dangerous… and that a whole metre away is what’s needed. Honest – Eric drew diagrams to show why it’s safer too! (According to research on accidents at junctions, cars can see you much better if you’re a metre off the curb.)Keep safe everyone… and keep doing shoulder checks!
