Road safety for young cyclists focused on at event in Inverclyde

An event involving primary schools in the Inverclyde area has met with resounding success and praise. The event, promoting and supporting road safety for young cyclists, was the 41st of its kind and involved Phoenix, a charity that constantly promotes every aspect of road safety.

The event saw 27 pupils, both boys and girls, enter from a variety of primary schools in the Inverclyde area. Each child had to go through a number of tests to determine their road safety awareness. These included a written test, a number of manoeuvres to determine how to safely negotiate traffic and parked cars, and a cycle check to make sure their bikes were safe to ride. While there were first, second and third-placed winners in both the boys’ and the girls’ groups, everyone was a winner in terms of learning plenty about cycle safety and road safety.

Those in charge of the event also spoke of the excellent facilities locally in Inverclyde for cyclists of all ages. The area has shared pavements as well as a variety of cycle lanes already in place, with more planned for the future as well.

How important is road safety for young cyclists?

Young children need to grow up with a good sense of road safety. If this does not occur they could find themselves in danger when riding their bikes on the pavements or in the road. Since all cyclists should ride on cycle paths or in the road, it makes sense to teach young children how to respect the roads and use them safely. This should help reduce the number of accidents occurring that involve younger children. The sooner we start teaching road safety, the better the results are likely to be.
