Edge – getting mobile!

I joined Mr Davies and Mr Cato as they started a new session with Year 5 pupils looking at the basics of bike maintenance and how gears and brakes work…not an easy thing to get to grips with! ¬†However, Shivam startled everyone with his succinct and very precise explanation about how and why we have gears…Top Gear did miss out on a top presenter here as I recall the letter that Shivam wrote to Chris Evans a number of years ago…oh well, their loss!

Well done this group, I could see that you were itching to get onto your bikes but a little knowledge can be a good thing as I know from the number of punctures that we had to repair in our staff ride to Paris! ¬†I suspect that there will be some very eager bikers wanting to make the most of the coming long weekend to set out on an adventure…good luck parents!
