MEARNS primary children are ready to hit the road after a visit from the Give Me Cycle Space campaign.

The East Renfrewshire school was treated to a demonstration from stunt team The Riderz, as part of the safety campaign to encourage children to take up cycling.

East Ren roads convener councillor Tony Buchanan said: “I’m always pleased to see young people leaving their computers behind and cycling either to or from school or to our parks and sports centres.

“But I am conscious that they should feel safe on their bikes.

“We must remind drivers to give the cyclists space and plenty of room when they pass them on the road.”
