Youth and community programs at PCYC Redcliffe

Bicycle Education and Safety Training

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.
