Balance Bike Workshop

Clare Kenward
City of Gosnells

On Saturday 5th of May we held our first of four balance bike workshops at Mills Park with the expert staff at Bikewise. We had 30 families come through and it was great to see everyone having a go on the balance bikes, including the parents. Two of kids learnt to ride a pedal bike in the first session which was wonderful to watch. It was a great morning and we couldn't have asked for better weather.

What a great activity! Fabulous to hear Gosnells is incubating a new generation of bike riders with these clinics. Is there anything you would do differntly? Or any tips you have for other local governments thinking of hosting these clinics?

Thanks Kylie. The sessions have run really smoothly. It has been great doing them on a tennis court as its a large flat surface. We held them at Mills Park which is a busy venue on a Saturday and meant we were able to engage with people passing by that were just using the park and checking out the skate park. Bikewise provided all the bikes and helmets so it meant people could just come in last minute and have everything provided.
