But for this Old Fletton Primary School pupil, he's gone one step further and created a film called Pedalling Pandemic see below

Mum Louise, of London Road, said: "He loves cycling and he's made a film about his travels. It is excellent and promotes the city really well."

She added: "In it he says 'I'm living my best life' - too cute."

Louise helped Herbie out with the editing and they've even entered the film for a competition being run by Into Films.

"It's amazing. We have been to so many places on our bikes. We've been to King's Dyke and even Castor," added the proud mum.

"The film paints our city in a really positive light - and he's only nine. He has certainly made the most of this situation ."
