Bike It!

bike it

What happened to Dr Bike? Dr.Bike Ben became Dr.Bike Mark – a lot older and much beardier, but the enthusiasm and fun remains the same!

What’s been happening? Dr.Bike Mark was in school last Friday afternoon having a brilliant four-wheeler to two-wheeler session with ten awesome Reception and Year 1 pupils.

Here’s how it went …We started with no pedals scooting around as fast as possible and sticking our legs out. This was great fun, especially if you whoop at the same time. When we were really good at that, the pedals were put back on. If we did a really good scoot to start and pedalled as fast as we could then suddenly we were biking! Now we just had to remember how to use our brakes!

Dr.Bike was really pleased, and all our friends could see us too. Our Mums and Dads were so proud when they saw us. Also on Friday was an assembly where Dr Bike talked about Bike It and some of the fun activities coming up for the school, and showed off his bike Sarah with the Pig of Happiness on his handlebars. He also answered lots of questions about bikes and scooters.

What’s happening next? Dr Bike is in again this Friday doing a cycling skills session with all the pupils from Year 4, just in time for some bike fun over the half-term holidays. There’s going to be loads of fun games and some rather unusual races for bikes, and even a few things for scooters.

What about after half-term? Dr Bike and Mrs Grainger are going to talk about this, but look forward to something exciting to do with Christmas!
