This week, students from year 4 took part in their first Let's Ride bike education session. The students came in to their first session well prepared with a safety briefing from the Let's Ride team a week prior to starting. This helped students understand the importance of bike and helmet checks prior to riding. The students were introduced to slalom riding, scanning behind and the importance of slow riding...even with a bit expertise shown by the great Anna Mears. This also culminated with a slow riding race, which sounded odd to the kids to start but all ended up throughly enjoying it and learning a few important tricks as well. All of the students really enjoyed the session and are looking forward to more challenges next week.

Great photos Brett! Glad to hear the Lets Ride training worked out so well for your year fours. Keen to see how this training may translate over the next few months into more kids feeling more confident to ride to school.

Here's a comment from a parent: "Afternoon Richard, Just a quick one to say thank you very much!! My daughter Theory from Notre Dame Primary School thoroughly enjoyed the Let's Ride Program. Fantastic program for children & Theory has learnt a lot. She is a lot more aware of her surroundings whilst riding & is a lot more confident. Thank you once again. Warm regards, Leonie Snooks"
