"There is a noticeable difference in ability when teaching children from a Biking School.
The trainees are more confident and capable when they are introduced to cycling on roads".
“The ability of the children is really quite amazing, far better than any other year 5 class I’ve taught before.
The training they’ve done in year 3 and 4 has clearly made a big difference".
