Kirkby Malzeard pupils learning to cycle thanks to UCI grant

Kirkby Malzeard pupils learning to cycle thanks to UCI grant

Published by Harry Long at 1:27pm 20th September 2019.

Students from a school near Ripon are running a cycling project using money from the UCI Road World Championships.

  • Around a third of students at Kirby Malzeard school couldn't or hadn't ridden a bike before.  
  • The money came from a grant from Harrogate Borough Council.  
  • The project has helped students learn how to cycle safely. 

It's after  a grant from Harrogate Borough Council.

Around a third of students at Kirkby Malzeard school couldn't or hadn't ridden a bike before.  

The project's helped students to learn how to cycle safely and taught them about the Highway Code.    

Gemma Pawson, a teacher at the school, explains how the project's worked:

"We applied for a grant from Harrogate Borough Council as part of the World Championships.   Every child can now ride safely, so those that could ride now know how to ride on a road.  We couldn't be prouder of them!"

Emily, who's 10, said:

" I like going on the road because I've never been on the road before on my bike.   It's all about trying to make sure people are safe on their bikes."

10 year-old William said:

"We learnt about checking our bike to make sure it's in a good condition and also how to ride safely.   It's a good form of transport -  it's fun, good exercise and it's healthy."
