As the start of the school year is only just around the corner, a little plea.
A growing number of children would like to cycle to school and indeed are. For some it will be their first time cycling regularly on our roads. Please give our young people who are starting to cycle some space, and be considerate if they wobble or make what may seem to be an erratic decision.
We all make mistakes, particularly when doing something new for the first time. It makes it even more important for those who have to drive their children to school that you take extra care over the next couple of weeks.
The same goes incidentally for taking care around adults on bikes too.
Thanks for reading, and hope that it's a good start to the new school year for everyone!
