UP AND coming young authors in London's East End had their first book launch when their story was unveiled to help spread the word among children about cycling safety.
The youngsters from Poplar's Cayley Primary penned A Scary Bike Ride, the story about Kenny's and Robert's adventure on an old bike.
The ride quickly went 'downhill' as the boys discovered the brakes didn't work. But they weren't deflated.
Their book highlights things that should be checked before riding a bike in the street, especially the brakes.

The children were joined by their mums and dads and teachers for the launch at Poplar's Idea Store, part of Tower Hamlets council's 'Junior Road Safety Officers' scheme running since 2003 where they appoint two youngsters from each school to give tips to the other pupils.
Throughout their 'year of appointment' they organise lots of competitions, quizzes and projects with road safety messages.
