Teaching school kids bike maintenance

Year 5 groupMCF Shipley Bike Hub staff and volunteers organised a lesson with a difference after Easter, when we went along to a Year 5 class at Fieldhead Carr Primary School to help pupils learn about bike maintenance. Both MCF and the school kids had a fantastic day, learning about safe cycling and good bike maintenance.

Children were asked to bring in their bikes and were given advice on:

  • what to regularly check/maintain on their bikes,
  • how to adjust their seats to the correct height and
  • how to make any basic repairs.

John Hyde and pupilsThe teacher invited us along to enthuse the class about bike maintenance as an introduction to the new book they were going to be studying. The class had such a great morning they are going to organise a bike collection for us. Thanks for having us, Fieldhead Carr!

Want to do the same? If your school or community group would like MCF to come along, email us to find out more about a group bike maintenance session. Contact helen@margaretcareyfoundation.org.uk
