TOP TIPS FOR CONFIDENT CYCLING
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.
