Sam's just done her first day in a school teaching bikeability to kids.....this woman's enthusiasm knows no bounds!

There really does seem to be a bit of a cycling revolution going on in Birmingham - not just the official Council run one but rather a whole new bunch of people (from areas not previously associated with cycling) taking up cycling, forming clubs, leading new rides, becoming instructors (we also have Lorraine in the pic, at the back who has recently become a ride leader and leads with JB&F on Saturday mornings, the Nechells Wednesday evening group and has been helping on British Cycling's Sofa to 50k Cycle Challenge.) and stood next to Paul in Sandesh another new instructor who has been teaching loads of people to ride in Handsworth and has started doing schools work.
