Bicycle Education & Safety

 
Bike riding can be a lot of fun and it’s great exercise too! But a recent study has shown that lots of Aussie kids aren’t cycling because they don’t feel confident riding in traffic. Bec found out about a program that’s hoping to get more kids on their bikes by teaching them how to stay safe on the road.

In a recent national story on the TV program, Behind the News, they featured the BikeEd Program that we run here at St Kevin’s. In 2014 we will be running the program for the third year. Bicycle education is important in keeping kids active and teaching them how to interact with traffic in a safe way. It also give kids independence and allows parents to have some confidence that while they are out on their bikes they have been taught what to do and how to behave.
