Larbert High School S1 Cycle Roadshow 13/06/2012Posted by Amy Hickman in Asda, Edinburgh, Scotland.
S1 pupils went cycling crazy at Larbert High this term when they took part in this year’s Cycle Road shows. Over 3 days 300 S1 pupils tried out different cycling activities to encourage more pupils to take up cycling and get involved in cycling activities at the High School.
Although slightly cold, the days stayed dry and pupils had the chance to try out the schools assault course, riding Tandem bikes, and tackling hills on mountain bikes. PC Imrie security stamped bikes that pupils brought along on the day and local bike recycling project Recyke-a-bike came along to teach pupils how to fix. All the pupils are to be congratulated on their effort and enthusiasm.
Thanks are given to all the senior pupils who assisted as well as all the departments that the school linked with to carry out this venture: Outdoor Education, Recycke-a-bike, PC Imrie and Transport Planning.
Girls Only Aloud!
Larbert High ran its first girls own cycling adventure to Calendar Estate cycle trails in Falkirk with Mr Townsend and Miss Macgowan. It was identified through the S1 cycle road shows that girls were interested in mountain biking but were uncomfortable going out with the boys. Miss Macgowan reported that ‘After getting to grips with the bikes we tried our hand at first the green run, then the blue and finally the red. This took us from flat trails to more challenging corners and undulations which we become more confident at. This was a great way to spend an hour out in the sunshine and we look forward to the next one after the summer holidays.”
