First News - - SPECIAL FIRSTNEWS -

Cy­cling to school for the first time may seem over­whelm­ing, es­pe­cially when the roads are busy. How­ever, there are a few things you can do to make it eas­ier and to help you feel more com­fort­able:

Plan your route in ad­vance – plan­ning ahead will save time and make your jour­ney to school much smoother. Work­ing to find the best route can also be a fun way to ex­plore your lo­cal area. Find­ing qui­eter roads and cy­cle paths wher­ever pos­si­ble can help make the jour­ney eas­ier and more en­joy­able.

Prac­tise the jour­ney ahead of time – once you’ve planned your route to school, ask your par­ents to try out a prac­tice run with you over the week­end when the roads are qui­eter. Know­ing what to ex­pect from the jour­ney will help you feel more con­fi­dent when it comes to Mon­day morn­ing. Cy­cle train­ing – if you are think­ing about cy­cling to school, cy­cle train­ing can be a great way to help you de­velop skills. Bike­abil­ity train­ing can help you cy­cle safely and give you con­fi­dence on the roads.
