Harold Hill pupils get on their bikes to pass cycling course
Pupils from a Harold Hill school got on their bikes to pass a Bikeability cycling proficiency course last week.
Eleven pupils at Broadford Primary took the level two course, which teaches pupils safety while riding their bikes.
The children, who were taught in groups of 12, have gained experience in dealing with traffic, as well as making journeys to school or the shops.
Toheeb Gbadamosi, 11, said: “Until I took the course I hadn’t thought about all the dangers on the road.”
James Burnett, 11, said: “Although I used to be worried about taking my bike off the pavement, but working with Phil has made me much more confident.”

The four sessions, which make up the level two course, aim to teach the children how to start and finish an on road journey and understand the Highway Code, among other skills.
Bikeability instructor Phil Mylrea said: “The school has transformed itself over the last three years and is now unrecognisable from the school it used to be. Broadford Primary is now one of the best schools that Cycle Training East works with.”
