TravelSmart to School WA

You can change the world by changing your trip to school!

GSG's Bikefest 2016 saw 129 bikes and 17 scooters lining the grass as students from Years 1-6 joined in the cycle festivities.

This year we featured:

  • safety messages - what protective gear to wear
  • current safety messages - "share the road" and "be safe, be seen switch on"
  • a series of videos on different cycling styles - the source of lots of 'ooohhs' and 'aaahhs'!
  • bike maintenance workshop
  • road skills lessons (hand signals)
  • a variety of steering, braking and balance courses
  • go-slow races (balance and control)
  • a cross country tour for Year 6 students.

Special thanks to parents for bringing bikes to school on the day.

Also thanks to Mr Carl Beck (TravelSmart Officer, City of Albany) and Mr Phil Stan-Bishop (Impulse Cycles), Year 11 and Year 9 Outdoor Ed students who assisted on the day, and to staff and teachers for their support in running another successful event.
