Back to school blues? Get ready for a family cycling holiday…
If you’re sad that the summer is over, fear not, the fun is only just beginning! Boost your kids cycling skills this autumn and take advantage of their daily commute to school. Here are 3 tips to get you started and keep the little ones fit and smiling up until October Half Term:
- Plan the route
Planning the route you’ll take to school is a must if you want to avoid any unwanted stress. Make sure you map out a cycling route taking in as many cycle paths/ park routes as you can find along the way. Remember to keep the journey as safe and fun as possible and check out the friendly folks at Sustrans for more helpful advice.
- Get them kitted out
A helmet and bright waterproof are essential items that will ensure your little ones are protected from the big, wide world! The Little Bike Company have lots of inspiring goodies that will keep them smiling on two wheels.
- Learn the laws of the road
Get the kids clued up on the Highway Code to boost their road awareness knowledge – a great way to build their cycling confidence on the roads. Children can learn to ride safely through Bikeability, which offers cycling training both at school and on an individual basis.
