Free cycle checks and Cycle Derby event at school


Free Bicycle Safety Checks at school, on 30thApril from 3:20pm onwards


In connection with our bespoke Every Child a Rider initiative, Derby City Council, working alongside Cycle Derby, Bike Back Derby, SmothieBike and Livewell will be visiting the school on 30thApril at 3:20pmto support families, children and adults alike with options for cycle activities, plans and initiatives.

This will include a free cycle check (all free of charge).


Each group will provide stalls with information about how you can access facilities in and around the local area that promote health lifestyles, access to activities, events and other resources. There will also be a brief presentation in the hall for those interested. There will be stands and representatives from each group and I strongly recommend that on this day you spare 20 minutes or more to see what is on offer.


How to access the free cycle check – it’s simple!

Do you ever worry if your child’s brakes work correctly, if the tyres need replacing or worried about that knocking noise when you peddle? Well, these checks will give piece of mind and advice to inform you if something is unsafe. Maybe, if it is a simple adjustment, something can be done there and then.


The offer is open to all adults and children alike. So if your bike has been left in the shed for a while and you want to get out on it as the weather improves, then bring it along.


What you need to do:

  1. Brush the cobwebs of the bike and get it out of the shed.
  2. Bring it to school at either 0845 and lock it up in the designated area, or bring it along at 3:20pm and take it to the designated checking area.
  3. Cycle home knowing your bike is safe.

I look forward to seeing as many of you as possible, with cylces, on the day. This really is a great opportunity to engage In a wealth of support and ensure that you and your child are safe!


Don’t miss out.
