Meg gets back on her bike

Wednesday, June 17, 2009

Accompanied by a group of school children, Meg Munn and more than 25 other MPs and peers, saddled up to participate in a Bikeability training session as part of the annual All Party Parliamentary Bike Ride. The group were put through their paces with a training session from a Bikeability instructor, before setting off on the ride.

 

The school children, MPs and peers departed from Speaker’s Corner and followed a route of cycle lanes along Constitution Hill and The Mall, before turning down Whitehall and ending at the Houses of Parliament. The All Party Parliamentary Bike Ride takes place ahead of Bike Week - one of the UK’s biggest annual promotions of cycling. It provides a national umbrella for locally organised events and activities around the country.

 

Meg said:

 

“Cycling is a life skill and cycling to school, to friend’s houses, or just as a fun activity, can be a hugely experience in a child’s overall development. I enjoyed taking part in the bike ride and hope it encourages more young people to discover the joys and benefits of cycling.”

 

Bikeability is cycling proficiency for the 21st century, designed to give children and young people the skills and confidence to cycle on today’s roads. Those taking part were given a taster of both Level 1 Bikeability assessing bike control, emergency stopping and indicating and Level 2, which takes trainees onto the roads, encouraging them to cycle confidently and make eye contact with drivers. The children used the ride as an opportunity to show off their newly-acquired Bikeability skills. For more information visit www.bikeability.org.uk
