Bike Education

 

Students participate in bike education weekly through a wide range of bikes catering for all abilities, which allows each student to progress as their skills and knowledge improve.

The aim of the Monash SDS Bike Education Program is to:

  • Give every student the necessary skills and ability to be confident in riding a bike/tricycle
  • Teach students about the road traffic environment and the laws associated with riding in the streets/community
  • Develop adequate cycling ability and coordination to manage different and changing environments as a cyclist
  • Develop responsible behaviour, attitudes and decision making skills for the safe use of bicycles, both on /off roads through learning experience appropriate to age and development.

The ultimate goal of Bike Education should be for students to become competent to ride safely and independently

 

The bike program promotes:

• Safety   • Basic bike skills    • Enjoyment    • Fitness
