Somerset - Cycling skills boosted by bling

8th January 2010 at 00:00

Children in Bath and North East Somerset "blinged" up their bikes as they took part in a scheme to improve their cycling skills.

A dozen schools took part in the scheme, funded by the local council and Sustrans, a sustainable transport charity.

All the primaries are part of the Bike-It scheme, which means children get cycle training and do classroom work on road safety and the environment.

Jim Imeson, Bike It Officer at Sustrans, said: "The Bling Your Bike exercise is a bit of fun to get young people excited about cycling to school. Creatively decorating the bike encourages young people to make paying attention to their bike part of their daily routine." KM.
