A bike club set up at Eastlea Primary School, Cramlington by Office Manager, Maria Holdsworth and Clive Eve from Cycle Experience, went on a mystery festive cycle ride …… to see reindeer.
Clive said “The last ride was in the dark and it was amazing seeing fourteen bikes in the dark with lights flashing and all the smiles, laughter and giggling .”
The club was something that Maria had wanted to arrange for a long time. Initially, there were just five pupils but by week six there were ten in total.
Their last ride was to see real reindeer at a local garden centre, the children had no idea until they got there.
“The children really look forward to their Wednesday after school club and due to it’s success this term it will recommence in the new year.” Said Maria.
It has also enabled more children to sign up to the Bikeability training Cycle Experience deliver at the school.
