Good Wheel Cycling with Children
We all know that riding a bike is good for us. And its certainly good for our kids! Families who ride together are happy, healthy and better able to concentrate over the course of the day. Would you like to be able to ride with your kids, maybe to school, the market, friend's places or the park? If you're being held back by a lack of confidence in your own skills or knowledge and live in North Melbourne join us for one of our Good Wheel Cycling with ChildrenTraining sessions.
The Squeaky Wheel will be presenting Good Wheel training sessions, funded by the City of Melbourne, for parents a carers who would like to ride with kids. This program is FREE to attend and suitable for people with basic bike skills (not beginners).
This two and a half hour session will take you through everything you need to know to safely check your own and your children's bike and equipment, be confident about the road rules that apply to you and your children, practice your own skills and know about the skills your child needs to have as well as give you information about local routes. If time permits, each session will finish with a short local ride practising everything we've talked about.
You will need a bike in good working order and to attend wearing comfortable brightly coloured clothing.
Places are limited to 30 participants per session. These sessions are intended for parents and carers only and not suitable for children to attend. This session will be held at North Melbourne Primary School.
Saturday 20 June, 9:30am - 12:00pm
