Worlledge cyclists and for their sterling efforts of making an early start to school, the children also received breakfast whilst having their cycles repaired.

Bike It is delivered by the charity Sustrans and is one of the country's most successful schemes to get young people cycling on a regular basis.

To add to the children having their bicycles fixed for free, the school had also received a gift from Tesco of 100 bicycle helmets which were given away to the regular cycle users.
