Lincolnshire Bikeability hits the airwaves

Children enjoying their Bikeability training at St Michaels Primary School in Lincolnshire had the extra treat of being broadcast across the airwaves thanks to BBC Radio Lincolnshire.

Rod Whiting who presents the Saturday Breakfast Show, and is a keen cyclist, popped along to the school to have a chat with our instructors and trainees to find out what they loved about the course.

Pauline Yemm offered an insight of what it takes to be a National Standard Cycle Instructor and what satisfaction there is to be had from seeing the progress made by the trainees, and it was clear from the children’s responses they feel more confident about cycling on the roads having completed the Level 2 training.

Here is a link to the BBC iPlayer recording (runs from 1hr 44min 55secs)

The clip is a great advert for Bikeability cycle training but also reflects the joys of working as a cycle instructor. This is further supported by the following comments from other members of the Outspoken Training team;

“It’s not a job, it’s far too much fun to think about it as a job, I love it!”

“I love seeing the children progress from being nervous on the first day through to cycling confidently in traffic by the end of the course. The satisfaction I get from their sense of achievement is why I do it”

We are interested to hear from people who are enthusiastic about cycling and feel they would love the challenge of creating the next generation of cyclists. For more information, please visit our recrutiment web page
