SCORES of young cyclists took part in an event to promote safe riding.

More than 250 people turned up at the Great De-Stabiliser Challenge, held in Norman Park, Bromley last Friday.

Bromley council cycle training team leader, Sarah Baker, said: "For many young cyclists the first hurdle they face is not riding their bike, but having their stabilisers taken off.

"After a bit of help from cycle officers and some cautious practice, lots of children were happily cycling on their own."

Child cycle training officers were on hand to remove stabilisers and to give the bicycles a once over.

A spokesperson for Bromley council said: "The event was a huge success and children also enjoyed the bouncy castle and face painting. Many children rode their bikes unaided for the first time in the safe environment of the park.
