Learning to ride a bike is a rite of passage for most kids and a life-long skill which promotes independence, social and health benefits. Bike the Park provides riders with the opportunity to take their riding to the next level.
With a focus on skill development and safety, your child will learn important skills including braking techniques, shoulder checks, avoiding hazards and hand signals. The workshop is engaging and fun. Riders will negotiate obstacles and challenges designed to support different skill and ability levels. The workshop provides a smooth transition from being able to ride a bike to be being able to ride a bike better and with confidence.
The skills and confidence gained from participating in Bike the Park will continue to enhance riders’ wellbeing well after the conclusion of the workshop.
