Cycling:On Thursday, Martin and Louise came out from Birr with the Cycle Right program to teach us about bike safety and the rules of the road. They then brought us outside for an hour to cycle bikes around the courts and to learn different things about bikes. This is a four week program and we can’t wait for them to come back next week.
