The youngsters from Uphill Primary School in Old Church Road, Uphill, were training for their level one and two badges in the Bikeability course.

The year fives took part in the session with Sole Cycling.

They first spent time in the playground getting to grips with signalling and showing they could cycle with confidence.

Once they had passed the first stage, they were then allowed to cycle on the roads around the school.

The cycling courses are are organised by North Somerset Council, and are offered free of charge to families at primary schools in North Somerset, thanks to funding from the Department For Transport.

Uphill Primary School aims to teach the safety lesson to every year five group before they leave.
