GREAT Britain Rugby League stars Jamie Peacock and Paul Deacon are backing Kirklees' first Safer Cycling School.
They will be at Whitechapel Middle School, Cleckheaton, today to find out more about a new pilot scheme organised by Kirklees Council's Highway Safety team.
It will train a third of the school's pupils in safer cycling skills.
Clr David Payne, the Council Cabinet member for Environment and Transportation said: "I am delighted that Jamie and Paul have been able to make time to help raise awareness about this new scheme.
"I know that all the members of the Great Britain Rugby League squad are very busy this year promoting local initiatives in support of the Department of Transport's Think! Road Safety Campaign."
The aim of the training is to encourage more children to ditch a ride in their parent's car in favour of cycling to and from school using the Spen Valley Greenway and local roads.
More than 120 pupils at Whitechapel Middle have received playground and on-road training, trips along the Spen Valley Greenway and bike maintenance sessions.
