Cycling workshop!!

On Friday the 7th of October we did our 3rd of 5 cycling workshops. Firstly we put on our helmets and went through our bike checks as we had done the previous two weeks. For the next hour the yard in Greenmount became a busy main road! Some of our classmates were chosen to be the traffic where they continually cycled on a set route which involved navigating a ‘busy road’ with two roundabouts! It proved a little difficult at first but we soon got the hang of it! Our other classmates learned how to use hand signals correctly and cycle from a T-Junction! We also practised changing  directions with lots of other cyclists! Some of our classmates are also working on improving their cycling skills and they are making fantastic progress! Loads of learning and fantastic fun again this week as seen in our photos!!!20160930_113328 20161007_114151 20161007_114219 20161007_114636 20161007_114649 20161007_115618 20161007_123036 cycling-resized-attempt-2
