Sport and Recreational activities at PCYC Ashmore

Bicycle Education

The PCYC Ashmore Bicycle Safety Centre is run as a full day program incorporating theory and practical units. We have recently implemented animated presentation with the focus to engage our  young audience and convey the contents clearly while incorporating the new animations to assist in demonstrating the contents.  The target audience is mostly Grade 4 students, attending as a school unit.

The presentation includes high quality video file animations, chosen to illustrate the most important scenarios for riding a bike safely on our Gold Coast roads. They introduce the young audience to common scenarios on the road, including obeying road signs and rules, while going through a step by step approach demonstrating the safest method to each.  The animations create a bright and positive cartoon atmosphere to entertain the audience while delivering serious lessons in safety.

The Bicycle Safety Centre is run in partnership between the Gold Coast City Council and PCYC Ashmore.

Gold Coast School teachers’ have given positive testimonials, including:

“An excellently presented day where students were able to learn in both classroom and practical situations.”

“Thank you for a great day! Kids highly motivated. All content was appropriate and engaging. Great facility and equipment. Thanks again”

Students attend through their school, if the school is engaged in the program. For all enquiries, contact Mitch Gooch on (07) 5539 5774 or email [email protected]
