Young biking enthusiasts steered their way to safer cycling as they took to the roads under the watchful eye of Stone-based experts.

More than 60 youngsters aged 11 and 12 learned how to tackle complex junctions, roundabouts and traffic lights when they joined the government’s Bikeability scheme. The Stafford Grammar School students began their level three training on quiet roads and progressed to busier highways, as part of the modern day cycling proficiency course delivered by Stone firm, Cyclist Training Limited.

   “The pupils had a fantastic and fun day, taught by highly professional instructors. Most importantly they learnt skills that will enable them to safely enjoy cycling in the future,”

said the school’s director of studies, Frank Johnson.
