Bike Education

This week, the grade four students are involved in our school Bike Education program.

Each day, students complete four rotations designed to improve their riding skills and road safety awareness. Students also participate in a daily on-road ride to practise their skills.

Some skills that students have practised include:

  • Preparing their bike and helmet for safe riding
  • The power position
  • Scanning
  • Indicating
  • Turning
  • Braking
  • Riding safely from a driveway to the road
  • Riding around parked cars
  • Giving way
  • Endurance riding
  • Riding on different surfaces
  • Riding single file
  • Riding with a partner and riding in a straight line

Students will have the opportunity to practise their riding skills again during our camp in a couple of weeks. It is also expected that the grade four students will be role models for other students when they are riding to and from school each day.

 A big thank you to all of the parents who have assisted with our Bike Ed program this week!
