Our Bicycle Education and Safety Training is designed to be challenging, educational, rewarding and enjoyable. The programme has been designed to accommodate Year 4 to 6 students.
The programme involves a three step process:
Step 1: Our road safety instructors will visit your school to introduce themselves and talk to your children about general road safety, which lasts approximately one hour. This step usually involves a Police Officer accompanying our trained staff.
Step 2: The students attend the Redcliffe PCYC facility, where our trained instructors deliver a programme supported by our Police Officers. The programme aims to improve the students bicycle skills and most importantly teach road rules & safety.
Step 3: Your students demonstrate their new abilities and knowledge on our road simulation bicycle track, which has working traffic lights, street signs and markings; all within the safety of the PCYC fence line.
