Some of Two Wells Community Children’s Centre’s older members had the “ride” of their young lives when they visited the Road and Cycle Safety Centre in Ridgehaven last month.
Just over 50 children took part in road safety and awareness sessions on Tuesday September 26 and Friday September 29.
The children were shown common road signs, how traffic lights operate and what they mean, and general road safety practices.
They were also given the opportunity to ride around on the purpose-built training tracks and have a go at putting into practice what they had learnt.
By all accounts the excursion was very successful and beneficial, with many children coming away from the experience with a lot more bike and road confidence.
The centre would like to thank the Two Wells Blue Light Disco group who donated $400 towards the excursion to help keep costs down.
