Last month all of the Year 5 and 6 children at Eastlea Primary School, Cramlington undertook their annual fundraising challenge. The challenge was to Bike or Hike from school all the way to Blyth Beach a distance of 3.5miles.
Usually up to thirty children walk and another twenty will cycle there. On this occasion, with the bike club based at the school, seven pupils who had decided to walk changed their minds, borrowed bikes and rode there and back.
The hikers set out first accompanied by staff, governors and community Policemen Andrew and Barry who did an excellent job in making crossings safe for the children.
School staff, members from the Vintage Cycle Club and Clive Eve from Cycle Experience, accompanied the cyclists.
Everyone enjoyed fish and chips when they reached the beach before hikers returned to school by coach and the cyclists did the return journey.
“The children were amazing and entered into the spirit of the adventure!” said Clive
