Cycle to School: 26/10/18

A huge thank you to everybody who turned up for today’s Cycle to School. We had a fantastic turnout of around 140 pupils and parents, which is amazing. Thanks also to the children and families who support from the sidelines- we love your encouragement!

There’s a fab video of the cycle in this tweet with some really positive comments in the thread. Worth a look if you get the chance- see if you can spot yourself!

We’ll take a wee break during the winter months but don’t let that stop you cycling to school. Just make sure you remember to make yourself seen with brightly coloured clothing and lights on your bike.

Thanks again for your ongoing support,

Miss McGrouther


Cycle to School 31.08.18

The weather did not let us down on another wonderful Cycle to School. Thank you to all of the children and families who turned up to join in and support- we truly appreciate it.

A special well done to those who joined in for the first time, including several of our new P1s- you are amazing.

The next cycle will take place on Friday 28 September. Pop it in your diaries and we look forward to seeing you there.


Cycle to School: Friday 31 August

Dear All,

Just a little message to say that the first Cycle to School day of this year will be held on Friday 31st August. We were very lucky with the weather last year and hope that we can manage a couple of months before we lose the light and weather conditions worsen. We are still aiming to run the Cycle to School rides on the last Friday of each month.

For those who are thinking about joining in for the first time, we meet at Kings Buildings (on the corner) at 8:15 for an 8:20 departure. We will then head straight down Mayfield Road towards Causewayside and turn left at Sciennes House Place on to Sciennes Road, picking up children and families as we go. It is helpful if those merging in from the side streets do so as we approach but please ensure that you then fall in behind the cycle leaders, whose job it is to set the pace and keep the group together. We would then ask that where possible, you make your way to the right hand side so that the children are on the inside.

A big thank you to all of the parents who have helped out on previous occasions. Your assistance on the road, at junctions and in general is truly appreciated and enables us to run these rides as smoothly as possible.


If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.


Kind Regards,

Jenni McGrouther

P6 Class Teacher

Cycle to School 22 June

Thank you very much to everybody who joined in and supported today’s cycle. It was great to see so many familiar faces and to have people join us for the first time too. Thanks to the kiddies for your enthusiasm and wonderful cycling efforts, and to the parents, without whom we would not be able to run these rides- that includes those running along the sidelines!

Have a fabulous summer (hopefully full of fun cycling adventures) and we’ll see you for some more cycles to school in the new term.

Cycle to School: 27 April 2018

A MASSIVE thank you to everybody who turned out for today’s ride. It was absolutely amazing to see so many children there and thank you so much to all of the parents who were there to support; your help was hugely appreciated. What a lovely way to start a Friday morning.

Big thanks also to Ross and Colin for leading the ride and for helping to ensure that it all went as smoothly as possible.

We hope to run another ride very soon. Fingers crossed the sun will come out to play then too! Watch this space for the next date.
