I’ve just ordered one school hat from the on-line uniform shop and I’m working out which of my days off will be the one for school shoe shopping. One bike in this house is due for a service, the one my daughter rides. Coincidentally this is the year she starts year One.
In term one, I have one thing to ask of you.
Would you commit to one morning a week to ride to school with your kid/s?
If it’s too far to ride to school, commit to one ride a week with them, to the corner shop or to the park.
If they are just learning to ride, commit to a session a week to give them time to learn.
Fun fact: I just heard U2’s ‘ONE’ while typing this first little bit.
Operation Move plans to boost the number of kids riding in 2014 and we will tail gate you all the way through your journey (oh yes, did you like that?).
If riding to school will be a new venture in your home, I can guarantee it will be a lot like this meme- that’s just life though isn’t it?
First of all, head to the Ride2School page. There is a parent survey on there which I just completed- its’ from 2013 but hey, if you could complete it that would be wonderful! There is all sorts of information on there from fitting helmets to refreshing yourself on road rules. Bookmark Operation Move (if you haven’t already) and Ride2School – you are good to go!
Are you in?
Please share your commitment with us in the comments!
Then somewhere between now and the first day of Term One, find one day to do the ride to school and check it out. A trial ride. We would love to hear all about it!
