With a rising interest in health and ecology, local councils have added urban bike lanes at a steady clip. The grand duchy’s first cycling school opened its doors in Differdange to instruct youngsters in an adapted setting, Le Quotidien reported on 1 September.
The school is open 7 days a week, the daily newspaper said. From Monday to Friday, the school offers its facilities to school classes, and over the weekend the lanes are open for families.
The school includes one circuit which is an authentic reconstruction of real-life road traffic, including street signs, junctions and red lights. A second track is built on grass and wood, so riders can practice intuitive biking and balance.
The indoor part is divided into two rooms: a traffic theory area and a repair workshop to teach mechanical know-how.
The commune of Differdange spent €125,000 on the school, Le Quotidien stated.
