NINETEEN children from Quadring Cowley and Brown’s Primary School sailed through their Bikeability training with flying colours.

Instructors from Lincoln’s Sincil College put years five and six pupils through their paces with two days of training, which included testing the roadworthiness of their bikes as well as safety gear such as helmets.

Following trials in the school playground, pupils set off on a route around the village to test they were able to put into practice everything they had learned.

Headteacher Nicola Wilkinson said the children are now cycling with greater confidence.
