She can ride OK, I'm talking about things like road positioning, signalling, shoulder checks etc.
If you ask "How far away do you ride from parked cars?", she is the first to pipe up "The width of a door and a little bit more.", exactly as she's been told, but when she's actually on the bike she passes cars so close that she is almost ducking underneath the wing mirrors!
Final day with this group today so we're taking them in a long ride. At around an hour, this will probably be the longest ride most will ever have done, and sadly, probably the longest some will ever do.
