Bexley Council has been praised for running free cycling courses for local children over the Summer.

The courses aim to give cyclists basic safety awareness using a mixture of fun off-road exercises and practical on-road training as part of Level 2 Bikeability training (the new name for National Standard Cycle Training).

The courses are open to anyone aged 10 or over, who lives or goes to school in the borough.

Each course is 10 hours long (two hours each, morning or afternoon) for five days.

Children must attend every session to complete the course, and must provide a roadworthy bicycle plus an approved cycle helmet (not full-face).

Frances Renton of Bexley Cyclists (the local LCC group) said, "We welcome these courses to build childrens' cycling skills, and adults should note there are also two excellent and very experienced cycle trainers who can give adult lessons too."

Places on the courses are limited and must be pre-booked. For further information or to book a place, call the Bexley Council Road Safety Team on 020 8308 7857 or email roadsafetyeducation@bexley.gov.uk
