Parkview Public School's Bike Safety Day has been hailed a success by organisers after a brilliant interactive day of cycling related activities at the school.

All students at the school had the opportunity to bring a long their bikes (or scooters) and participate in a range of activities including the negotiation of bike track that featured a range of gradients, twists and turns and also required participants to adhere to road rules as determined by clearly posted signs.

While not on the bike track, students engaged interactive road and bike safety lessons with Leeton Shire Council's Road Safety Officer Sandra Robinson, while road worthy checks were carried out on all bikes and scooters by representatives of Eurell's Of Leeton and the school's P&C.

The excitement of the day even saw Mr Collins and Mr Irvin test their skills on the tricky bike circuit that wound its way through the grounds of the school.

At the completion of the day all students received a road safety feedback slip from Eurell's Of Leeton in relation to the roadworthy nature of their bikes amd scooters, while stickers, lights, repair kits and other giveaways were gratefully accepted by students from the RTA and Leeton Shire Council.

Over 200 photos of the day are available to view in the photo album section of the website.
