She told us about how to put on a helmet properly, check that it doesn’t have any cracks in it, and what hand signals to use when we are on the road with our bikes.
Whaea Cath talked about what to look for to make sure our bikes are safe to ride.
She showed us how to check the front and rear brakes, make sure the wheels are tight and the chain is ok.
Some girls in our class were very scared of riding their bikes because they might fall off. Whaea Cath and a few of our parents helped the girls to become more confident and by the end of the lesson were riding by themselves, and going down hills confidently.
