All parents know how busy our roads can be, even in a village like Haddenham. So when our youngsters venture out on their bicycles, it is reassuring to know that you've helped them to understand the potential dangers, and have given them the insights and skills they need to stay safe on the road.
That's where Haddenham Cycle Training comes in. This wonderful group of experts provide cycle training courses (the clue is in their name!) to a very high standard. As you may have spotted, last week (mid-August 2012) saw another of their training programmes in action, led by Helen Krauze and supported by a group of trained helpers.
Haddenham Cycle Training aims to improve cycling ability and knowledge, both on and off the road. The group wants to enable those it trains to enjoy cycling more frequently and more safely.
Haddenham Cycle Training train and assess children through a Progressive Training Package, from Reception up to Secondary School, until they are ready to venture unaccompanied on the roads. They also train children out of school as well as adults and are happy to tailor sessions for individual needs. The group organises cycling activities and rides for youth groups and also run a monthly Bike Club in Haddenham.
Since December 2010, Haddenham Cycle Training been an Instructor Training Organisation (ITO). That's one of only 18 or so ITOs in the UK recognised by the Department for Transport, an amazing achievement for an organisation of its size. The group can now train more instructors and welcome existing cycling instructors as members of HCT-ITO.
You can contact Haddenham Cycle Training by phone, email or post.
