Cycle sales have now overtaken the sale of cars in Australia. Cycling is becoming an increasingly popular recreational activity and means of sustainable transport. As the number of participants increase, including school children, it is important that they are provided with the necessary skills and knowledge to safely ride a bike in the community.
Have Fun Bike Skills offer a comprehensive training package for schools that covers the fundamentals of bicycle riding skills and bike education. Apart from the benefit of being able to ride a bike safely and skilfully, and have a good knowledge of road safety, participants will benefit from increased fitness, improved coordination, balance and confidence. The program is also lots of FUN!
The Have Fun Bike Skills programs are based on the training materials provided by AustCycle which is Australia’s National cycling accreditation program. Go to: www.AustCycle.com.au
The bike skills programs can be incorporated into a one off sports lesson, or into a series of progressive lessons tailored to suit the needs of the group. The following existing programs are available.
