Spokesabout has headed into schools in the Fraser Coast region, completing the first round of courses run under the Active Transport Program/FCRC.
AustCycle accredited Teacher Michelle Lennard said two low traffic skills courses were run for children aged 10 to 12 years of age, and that both courses were a great success.
“Both groups of children were taken for a short 4km road ride to reiterate the riding skills they had learnt over the beginner and intermediate courses”.
“This confirmed to the children correct riding etiquette when on the road and provided excellent experience in a controlled and safe situation”.
Another three traffic-free courses, as well as three low-traffic courses, are to be implemented the schools in early 2013.
