First of all we arrived at the Scout Hut in Bulkington to have our bikes checked. If our bike passed the test we went inside. Once everyone was inside ‘Chill’ explained bike rules and bike safety. Then we split into three groups , group one, group two & group three. We then got on with the activities. I was in group one and first we did puncture repairs. We learned to take the inner tube in and out. After that group one went inside to do loads of little quizzes and we had to know what to wear on a bike. The last quiz was easy you could just follow the words and fill them in. then we had lunch.
After lunch group one had a road bike route. We had to ride up the road then we had to turn into a car park. There we practised putting a hand off the bike and back on.. After that we had an off road task. We had to ride up and down a dirt track and it was fun. When we finished that the obstacle course was next. First of all we had to weave through cones, then ride straight through a rope, then make a figure of eight. We then rode in boxes and in the blue square or box we rang our bell, and then we had to ride back to Max.

On Saturday 10th May we went to 1st Buklkington Scout Hut to get our Cycling badge. We learnt how to take a tyre off and how to fix a puncture. We learnt the hand signals and we went on a dirt track and it was really fun. We got to pump up a tyre and find a puncture in a bowl of water. We went round an obstacle course and that was lots of fun.
