Lockyer Primary School was the first school in Albany to take advantage of some free cycle education for their students provided by the City of Albany thanks to some funding from RAC.

Five sessions of approximately 50 minutes were run during the day by Albany Leisure Centre staff member and qualified Mountain Bike Coach Matt Walker with almost 80 students participating during the day.

Sessions focused on the basics of safe riding including how to conduct a basic bike check, the proper way to wear a bike helmet, hand signals and how to interact with traffic.

Matt will be returning to Lockyer PS on 15th March to run some more sessions for some additional students as well as visiting other Albany Schools over the next two school terms.
