PRIORY PEDALERS – Free of Charge, led cycle rides for fun and fitness

To kick things off this year and encourage as many children (and families) to get out and get active on their bikes and/or scooters, we are launching Priory Pedalers.

Priory Pedalers are led bicycle rides in the local area and one will take place each half term (on a Saturday morning) throughout the year. Lindsey Hicks who runs Bike It at Priory and who is a trained British Cycling Ride Leader, along with another trained Ride Leader will be managing each event. More information and the dates of the rides are available on the bike-ride-leaflet.

Children from Priory School who come along to at least 1 of these led rides, will earn the ‘Bike Buddy’ badge and get their picture in the Newsletter.

 

INFORMATION COMING SOON…

  • Earn your  Bike Technician badge in a workshop being organised soon.
  • ‘Get Out Get Active’ Scheme
  • Pool Bike availability for Priory children
