iWay Cycle Training

A sunny start!

Today, Therese and Lyndall came into school to teach us the rules and skills required to be able to cycle safely. This is especially important because of how Hawkes Bay is learning to become more cycle friendly.

We learned the ABC checklist for making sure our bikes were ready to ride, and learned that it is entirely illegal to ride a bike without a helmet in New Zealand.

We then learned a huge number of cycle skills and played games to test them. We learned to mount our bike and dismount safely while moving. We also learned to look back over our shoulder safely so as to avoid swerving into traffic. A big thank you to everyone who made this happen!
