The Let's Get Going Story.

Cyclist Skills Training - Schools: Cyclist skills training is often seen as a 'right of passage' for our children. Let's Go provides the NZTA cyclist skills programme to any Primary School within the New Plymouth District. The skills offered are aimed at Year five - Year eight.Children taking prt in the BDO cycle skills training. Grade one is completed in the school environment, where children are taught key skills such as the power start, life saver look, signalling, manoeuvring and all round observation. Grade two is completed on road, where children will be given the opportunity to put the skills learnt in grade one into practise.

The session is one and a half hours, with half of the session delivered in the school grounds, and the other half on the neighbouring streets.
