AN Athersley school has won a cycling competition.

Pupils at Richard Newman Primary have been crowned the winners of an inter-school cycling competition.

The school took part in The Big Pedal competition which encourages children, and their parents, to cycle to school.

Jayne Smith, Bike It champion at Richard Newman, said: "It's fantastic for the school and it's nice for the kids to win something. I thought we might win the Barnsley section, but it was only when I rang to check that I was told we had won the Yorkshire and Humberside section."

The school had to upload to the Big Pedal website how many children and parents came to school on their bikes every day which is automatically calculated into a mileage.

As a result of their hard work, the children will enjoy a performance by a bike display team in May.
