A dozen Year 6 pupils will help launch the 2015 Bikeability programme in Buckinghamshire on Tuesday (June 23).

And they'll do it with help from Mark Shaw, Buckinghamshire County Council's Cabinet Member for Transport.

Bikeability - what used to be known as Cycling Proficiency - is supported by the County Council to the tune of £144,000, and aims to train 3,600 children aged 10 and 11 in safe cycling on the roads.

Key skills that form part of the eight-hour programme over four days, include good judgment while riding in traffic, making tricky turns in the road, as well as practical bike checks.

Mark said: 'You never forget how to ride a bike, so it's a good idea to get well-trained in the best practice. Bikeability sets up young people brilliantly with skills in safe road use.'
