On Your Bike

On Your Bike

What You’ll Need:

  • Bikes
  • Helmets

Getting into the Activity

Explore your local area by jumping on a bike and going for a ride.

Before doing this activity, a route will need to be planned. This could be done by a leader, or young people could be involved with deciding the route. Consider what the safest route is, using cycle paths where possible. You should also think about how far the route will go, how difficult it might be and where you’d like to go / what you’d like to see. Could you try to explore somewhere where you haven’t been before?

On the day of the bike ride, young people should make sure their bike tyres are well pumped and the rest of the bike is in good working order. Young people should also wear a cycle helmet for safety. Encourage the group to take a drink with them and maybe even a snack. If you plan on including a shop or ice cream van on the route, then money will also be needed.

Most importantly enjoy the bike ride and exploring your local area.

Keeping Everyone Safe 

  • Activity MUST be supervised by a leader or parent/carer at ALL times.
  • A leader or parent/carer MUST assess risk before taking part.
  • A leader or parent/carer MUST ensure that current Government guidelines are followed at all times (including social distancing, travel etc).
  • The cycle route should ideally avoid busy roads and instead use cycle paths where possible.
  • Helmets should be worn and other safety equipment such as high-vis jackets are recommended.
  • A first aid-kit should be taken on the ride, just in case.
