Organised ride promotes cycling to school
Richmond Council is encouraging Year Six pupils preparing for secondary school to ride to classes next term.
The youngsters took part in a ride from Archdeacon Cambridge’s School in Twickenham to Teddington Secondary School.
Cllr David Trigg said: “Most children don’t want to turn up to school in their parents’ car. By providing an organised bike ride they will get to know the routes to school and become familiar with cycling on the roads.”
The council intends that in future all Year Six pupils will have the chance to take part in an organised ride from where they live, or from their primary school, to a secondary school.
