Learning to ride with confidence

Neil Brodie

This story relates to Bicycle Riding,

To support our National Ride2School Day programme, our Mount Lawley Primary School year one students participated in Bicycle Education workshops. These workshops were proudly supported and provided by the ‘Your Move’ program and the City of Stirling.

The Mount Lawley P&C Traffic Management Group organised the workshops, which ran throughout March and prior to Ride2School Day. The aim of the workshops was to teach correct riding skills and bike safety.

In total, four workshops were held with 75 year one students participating. This was a great level of participation.

Before each workshop, parent volunteers checked that all bikes were safe, including checking tyre pressure, the chain and seat height.

The students were very excited to participate in the workshops. The feedback from the school, students and parents was “it was a hit!”. It was great to see so many smiling, confident riders.

Another great activity organised by your TMG. I do love hearing about all the smiles that cycling often generates - especially for kids. I have linked you story the the "Bike Education sessions" activity, which gives you 80 points, plus you received a bonus 10 for giving all the details.
