FREE cycling courses are being offered to children during the spring holidays.

The Bexley council-run courses will teach basic safety awareness, using a mix of off-road exercises and practical on-road training.

Courses are open to anyone aged 10 or over who lives or goes to school in the borough. Each course is 10 hours long, two hours each morning or afternoon, for a week.

Children must attend every session to complete the course, and provide a roadworthy bicycle and an approved cycle helmet, not full-face one.

To book a place, contact the road safety unit on 020 8308 7753 or e-mail roadsafetyeducation@bexley.gov.uontact. Courses run from April 14 to 18 at Hurstmere School between 10am and 12 noon, and at Belmont Primary School between 2pm and 4pm.
