As part of a drive to ensure a lasting legacy from the Tour de France, the Sport and Active Lifestyles Service organised a subsidised cycling for schools 1 day workshop for teachers, in partnership with British Cycling.
The course has allowed teachers and adults who work or volunteer in schools, to gain the necessary skills to deliver cycling for children and young people on a school site.
The workshop consisted of both outdoor practical activity using the bikes as well as some classroom based activity.
The course was attended by 14 people from schools across the city, who can now deliver curriculum or extra curriculum cycling activity to increase participation and exercise.
It is hoped another course will be delivered later on in the year to encourage more schools to offer regular cycling activity for their children.
