Last Friday we ran our final session with a group of 8 year six pupils from Shirehampton Primary School . The programme began in January of this year and continued each week, with each session focusing on a different aspect of bike mechanics. After 6 weeks of intense learning and fun, the group had the opportunity to start refurbishing a donated bike and make it into their own. There were four tutors from the Bristol Bike Project teaching and supporting the group. The final session was the result of all the effort everyone had put in. It was a real reward to go on a ride together.
This is the second year we have accommodated a group from Shirehampton. Both the pupils and the tutors have thoroughly enjoyed every second of this scheme, and it is a success we hope to reiterate again in the future.
