The students of Gooloogong Public School have the opportunity to ride pushbikes every day.
The school boasts nearly 1ha of bike tracks, four in total, that require the children to practise such skills as stopping, starting, give way, right and left turning, distance riding and manouvering around designated lines and slalom all before they are let lose on the BMX track.
The bikes have been sourced by local distributors, Cowra Power Equipment & Motorcycles (Giant Cycles) and from Don Percival of Canowindra.
In a very short time the skill and fitness levels of the children has positively increased.
