First Community Event for Bike Month

Gavin Giles
City of Fremantle

We had our first community event on this amazing Spring day with the kids Cycle School, Balance Bike Clinic and Hello Confidence sessions at the Fremantle PCYC in Hilton.

Sam and his Nanna attended the Balance Bike Clinic with seven other kids. Sam really wants to ride around but does not have much confidence. Sam's Nanna said the session was really helpful with things to help his confidence like the correct way to put on a helmet (they can be uncomfortable if not set up the right way) the best side of the bike to get on, using the brakes. "His balance is already getting stronger and the fold up pedals were really good as you can switch between a balance bike and they switch to pedaling very easily".

Hi Gavin, Sam and Nanna! Looks like your bike skills sessions were a real hit in Hilton. I like the idea of those fold up pedals - I'll have to look into that as I've never seen them before. You have earned 50 points for these sessions plus 10 for giving us another good read.
