CYCLING RESOURCES

Check out these helpful resources including a guide for new/returning riders, biking to school and locking tips. Remember, a practical cycle skills course is the best way to build your confidence and skills!

Let's Ride!

Tips for staying safe on the road and making the most of your bike for people who are new or returning to cycling. This guide includes information on setting up before you ride, planning, skills to practice, riding in traffic and riding with others. It also has illustrations showing the best place to be around heavy vehicles and also locking your bike securely. 

Biking to School

Our biking to school guide is designed to support tamariki who have completed the Grade 2 Pedal Ready training and are getting ready to ride to school (or part of the way) independently. It has refresher information on helmet, clothes and bike checks and a few suggestions on navigating intersections safely.

Locking tips and heavy vehicles posters

We've pulled these two pages out of the Let's Ride guide as useful standalone pages which you can share in your workplace or school.
