Milperra Bike Program

Milperra Bike Program is a Bike Education program that involves theory and physical based learning.  Students will learn road rules and signs, relating to both traffic and bike users.  They will also learn how to ride, control and maintain a bike through simulated bike courses and paths marked by road signs and traffic cones.

Braking the Cycle

Braking the Cycle is our volunteer driver mentor program designed to support learner drivers without access to a supervisor or registered vehicle to complete their logbook hours. The aim of the program is to provide young people with increased employment opportunities, community connection and driver education.

Participants are matched with a specific volunteer from our extensive and experienced driver mentor network. Mentors provide encouragement and help young people improve their self-esteem and develop positive road safety attitudes.

With the support of government, community and corporate partners, Braking the Cycle is currently offered at 33 PCYC clubs across Queensland. Since its inception in 2012, Braking the Cycle has received 19 awards from the Australian Road Safety Awards, Queensland Reconciliation Awards and Regional Achievement & Community Awards, and most recently won a silver award in the 2017 National National Crime and Violence Prevention Awards.
