Hi Karen - some great action shots there to really bring the story to life. I've given you an extra 25 points for including bike maintenance as an add-on to your off road skills activity.

Well done Karen, it's such a great idea to get students out in the fresh air and learn bike skills and bike maintenance in such a stunning bush setting. Mountain biking is also a great way to get kids (and adults) interested in bike riding which often results in them riding more to school, to work and to the shops etc.
