School Sports Partnership Launches Cycle Assistance Scheme

Cycling proficiency courses teach road safety, but with an increase of 160,000 + cyclists, the number of kids that will be involved in a cycling accident has risen, prompting specialists Total Cycle Assist to get involved in supporting Bikeability.

PRLog - Feb. 21, 2013 - South Derbyshire School Sport Partnership and Total Cycle Assist have joined forces to offer Bikeability  course youngsters extra safeguarding for their bikes, but also importantly - for them.

Cycling proficiency courses give vital teaching to youngsters on road safety, cycle handling and crucially, confidence in the use of their bikes on the road.  Looking to add increased safety to this initiative,  local cycling specialist cover firm Total Cycle Assist have teamed up with the South Derbyshire School Sport Partnership in supporting Bikeability.

Total Cycle Assist have offered all Bikeability course youngsters and parents  their  cover, which ensures that in the event of an incident, they get a 24 hour helpline, bike repair,  brand new bike replacement, private health care and legal support for only £2.

Managing director for TCA Richard Williams comments, ‘Children and bikes go together, but it’s also a huge worry that they might get hurt on the roads. The Bikeability scheme is absolutely fantastic, it’s the old cycling proficiency that I remember as a boy. We’re more than happy to add even more safety to the package by covering the youngsters and their bikes just in case there’s and accident. As a parent myself I know that when your child is out of sight, you worry. We can’t stop that happening, but we can give some assurance that in the event of an incident there’s around the clock help at hand’.

Direct action by schools to offer cycling proficiency is essential with the growth in cycling amongst all ages having increased by  over 160,000 (figures by Sport England).  Total Cycle Assist are rolling out their offer across all Bikeability projects and encourage schools to get in contact with either them direct or their local cycling club who can put them in touch with the scheme administrators.
