Arnold Hill Academy has written to parents and also issued a plea on its Facebook page and is reminding them to warn their children of the dangers of riding irresponsibly.

Teh Facebook post read: “We have written to parents about pupils riding their bikes dangerously on local footpaths and roads asking them to share our concerns, and those of the wider community, with their children.

“We have highlighted particular issues with cyclists riding as a large group blocking the road including towards oncoming traffic, pulling wheelies on Gedling Road and the pavements near the junior schools, cycling down the centre of the road and weaving between traffic.

They added: “Within school, we regularly remind pupils about the dangers and have had the local road safety team alongside the schools link police officer speak to most of the cyclists in school.
