CHILDREN were shown pictures of Olympic gold medallist Bradley Wiggins and other sporting heroes to get a safety message across.
Andrew Tee, of charity Child Brain Injury Trust, at Baynards Green, near Bicester, told pupils at Bicester’s Brookside School about staying safe on the roads.
Showing them photos of Tour de France winner Bradley Wiggins and British female BMX champion Shanaze Reade, Mr Tee used the athletes to explain why it was “cool” to wear cycle helmets.
He also passed on safety tips to help them be seen in the dark as the nights draw in.
Mr Tee said: “This was the first time I have done work in schools and the response was fantastic.”
