Nadeen School Cycling Event.
“To me it doesn’t matter whether it’s raining or the sun is shining or whatever: as long as I’m riding a bike, I know I’m the luckiest guy in the world.” Mark Cavendish, British pro racer
More than 30 ‘lucky’ people turned out for the inaugural ‘Nadeen School Community Cycle’ on Saturday 28th January. Teachers, parents, current students and alumni came together for an 11 kilometre cycle in Zallaq. A special mention to Adam in Year 4 who came along on his scooter and to Seb in nursery who has been learning to cycle and came to wave us off at the start whilst he practised with his mummy.
It was a windy morning but the sun was shining and everyone was in good spirits. The wind makes up for the lack of hills and it was certainly a test of endurance for some. The cycle loop is currently closed for resurfacing so we used the fantastic cycle lane that sits adjacent to Zallaq Highway. The Year 7s led the way with Mr Ben whilst Ms Agnes and Ms Karlien made sure that the families cycling were safe at junctions and kept some lane discipline!
It was wonderful to see so many parents supporting their children in keeping fit and active. The temperatures at this time of year are lovely for getting out and about and cycling is a perfect form of exercise for young and old alike. Everybody went home with a smile on their face knowing that they’d had fun with friends and been good to themselves with a light workout.
We look forward to the next Nadeen School Community Cycle and hope more of you can join us out on two wheels!
