AustCycle Training Courses Get Kids Off Training Wheels in Adelaide
Ride-a-Bike Right, one of AustCycle’s Licensed Providers in SA, has been delivering AustCycle training courses to three primary schools across Adelaide, drastically improving the bike handling skills of the children.
Of the 637 children involved in the course, 197 were on training wheels when the program commenced - meaning only 66% could ride a bike. However, on completion of the program 86% of the children could successfully ride without training wheels.
Lee-Anne Flemming, owner and director of Ride-a-Bike Right, said that helping children learn to ride without training wheels is an amazing feeling.
“I love giving kids the keys to unlock their ability to change their outlook,” she said.
The business has also been delivering cycle training programs to adults within the Playford City Council area, something that Lee-Anne says has been a great success.
“Term 2 has been a great one for Ride-a-Bike Right,” Lee-Anne told AustCycle. “At the second session, one 50 year-old lady proudly said that she had been able to ride up a previously “impossible hill” because now she understood how to use her gears”.
And, it doesn’t look like things will be slowing down for Ride-a-Bike Right any time soon.
“I am looking forward to extending my cycling education skills with AustCycle over the coming months,” Lee-Anne said.
