P7 Bikeability

Primary 7


We will be starting this year’s Bikeability training with our current P7s soon.

On Friday 23rd March we ask that your child brings a bike and helmet into school to be checked before the sessions start.  Please check the following at home – 

Helmet Fitting

Step 1

Place the helmet on your head. When fitting your helmet, there should be nothing under your helmet that won’t be there the next time you wear it.

Step 2

Adjust the helmet so that it is level on your head and low over your forehead. It is recommended between one and two finger widths between your eyebrow and the helmet.

Step 3

Centre the left buckle under your chin. If there is too much or not enough slack in the strap, remove the helmet momentarily and adjust the length of the strap. Depending on the design, the strap can be adjusted at the buckle or toward the back of the helmet.

Step 4

Place the helmet back on your head and adjust the plastic sliders on the straps at your ears. The straps should form a “V,” with the bottom of the “V” just clearing your ear lobe.

Step 5

Buckle the chinstrap. Tighten the strap so that it’s snug but not uncomfortable. One or two fingers should be able to fit beneath the strap.

Basic Bicycle Check

Tyres – make sure your tyres are pumped up. Give them a pinch to make sure they are hard. If they feel soft, pump them up. Check they are not worn down

Brakes – test them before every ride and make sure they are not rubbing against the tyres, Check that the brake pad is making contact with the tyre rim.

Chain – make sure it’s not hanging off, broken or rusty. Oil it.

Saddle – make sure it’s adjusted to the right height. Too high or too low and it won’t be comfortable or safe. To get the right height, adjust the saddle until you can stretch your leg out and comfortably place the ball of your foot on the ground. This means that when your pedal is at its lowest position, your leg should be slightly bent

Lights and reflectors – if you’re planning on riding at night make sure the lights on the front and back of your bike are both working and not covered up by mud or anything. You should also use your lights when the visibility is low, such as in bad weather .

HandlebarMake sure there is no shake in the handlebar.
