Cycle training in the ACT helps change lives

AustCycle Provider Cycle Education has been busy making sure ACT residents get back on their bikes, using the HCI helmet incentive to help participants change their lives.

AustCycle has continued its helmet initiative to support participants within the Healthy Communities Initiative to get back on a bike. And in the ACT, these helmets are being put to good use.

“One 70 year old lady lives on a farm and arrived with a classic 1970’s Bell helmet and a bike from about the same era,” said owner and Teacher Raynie McNee. “She was the lucky first recipient of a new helmet”.

“Another one of our ladies, who is a student at ANU, had her bike and helmet stolen between our classes so we were able to lessen the pain by providing her a new helmet”.

Raynie runs both adult and kid learn to ride courses around the state and says that teaching people to ride is incredibly rewarding.

“I know many people who enrol in my courses, including my mountain biking courses, note that ‘I’ve changed their lives’, which is an amazing moment for me”.

“I personally try to create an opportunity for a person to try something new, helping their health and a personal life achievement in a safe, secure, supportive environment”.
