The Riderz Visit to Beauly
Thirty nine schools in Scotland are being visited by The Riderz as part of the national ‘Give Me Cycle Space’ campaign – Beauly Primary was one of the thirty nine! Beauly was selected as a result of our pupils hard work in promoting and improving safe cycling and scooting. Everyone loved the Riderz Stunt Show and the no hands, 360 backflip jump (while demonstrating the ‘Give Me Cycle Space’ logo) was definately everyone’s favourite! – The following is some of the feedback from the visiting Riderz crew:
It’s Friday 13th eek! It’s also the last day of our school tour and we are in beautiful Beauly. There are 70 bikes in the bike racks today which is fantastic to see. That means most of the pupils cycled to school today – well done everyone!!!! It’s great to see so many bikes. Luke and Ali from our team (who are both trials riders) were particularly excited to see trials bikes in school.
We have been speaking to the staff and apparently there has been a great effort made by everyone to promote cycling, we can see how you became a Cycling Scotland Cycle Friendly School! Because of the lack of space we’ve had to set up the stunt show over by the Shinty Club.
We worked with the P4/5/6/7s today. Sarah, our artist, is helped some to create some really colourful maps of the cycle routes around the school.
