Sixth Form Students Enjoy Cycling at Herne Hill

The Sixth Form students at Turney School have continued with their weekly trips to the nearby Herne Hill Velodrome following the Easter break. All class members make the trip each Monday to enjoy the activities organised by our friends from Wheels for Wellbeing.

The main focus here is on safety and enjoyment. The Turney Sixth form students have settled well into the routine of making sure that they are wearing a helmet, and then choosing a bicycle that they feel comfortable to ride.

Wheels for Wellbeing has a tremendous selection of bicycles that help everybody to be able to access the amazing facilities at Herne Hill Velodrome. Some of the Turney students are able to ride traditional bikes, whilst others enjoy the tandems or three wheel bicycles.

The Wheels for Wellbeing staff help the students to build up their confidence around the historic track. The pupils use the inner circle, and are encouraged to cycle as independently as possible. It is great to see pairs of pupils working together on some of the tandem bikes.

These Herne Hill sessions have so many benefits for the Turney students. They encourage physical and social activity, as well as an understanding about sharing the resources.

We are also keen for the Sixth Form pupils to perhaps explore cycling at Herne Hill in their own free time. Wheels for Wellbeing offer regular sessions for local people who would like to enjoy the Velodrome. The Turney sessions are a taster as to what else is on offer.
