Calderstones School are riding high

Calderstones School has become the first city school to partner with citybike to help pupils learn about road safety and increase physical activity.
As part of an initiative with Liverpool’s cycle hire scheme and cycling co-operative Peloton, pupils at Calderstones School will have access to citybike as part of PE lessons.
The famous green bikes will be used under supervision as an alternative activity to help pupils become more confident on two wheels and help promote a healthy active lifestyle.
Assistant headteacher Sian York said: “We have always used Calderstones Park for some outdoor PE lessons like cross country. It is great that with two citybike stations in the park we will now be able to offer all pupils access to the scheme so they can become more confident travelling by bike safely and discover a new way to keep active.”
Councillor Malcolm Kennedy, cabinet member for regeneration, transport and climate change, at Liverpool Council, said: “This is great news for pupils at Calderstones School. The initiative is set to give pupils a good grounding in responsible cycling, which should in turn encourage them to remain lifelong cyclists.”
Peloton will also be offering the school a Dr Bike service to repair pupils own bikes and show them how to maintain them.
