Teaching kids to ride with confidence
This week the CDF is delivering a bike skills course at a local North Perth Primary School. The three 1.5 hour lessons have been funded by a City of Vincent grant and the CDF is delivering the course. Local Mayor John Carey, a massive proponent of funding for bicycle infrastructure and riding as a form of transport, is expected to attend one of the three days and meet some of the children.
The Year 5 class will be taught skills, confidence and tips on how to ride safely to school. We hope our involvement encourages a love of bike riding and more children to choose to ride to school and enjoy the activity as a sport and recreation with their families.
