More than 300 pupils will be learning how to cycle as the delayed 2020 Bike to School week gets under way.
The national ride-to-school initiative, which was rescheduled from its usual spot in May due to Covid-19, will see cycle training delivered in 25 Barking and Dagenham schools.
Lessons will be carried out by Vandome Cycles, on behalf of Be First and Barking and Dagenham Council.
