23 March 2006     The Sunshine Coast Cycling Club today announced details of its new cycling program aimed at children between 6 and 16 years of age.  The program simply titled Introduction to Cycling for Juniors is aimed at those children who want to develop their cycling skills whilst at the same time doing so in a controlled and safe traffic free environment.
The Program will be held at Claymore Road, Chancellor Park every Saturday morning between 8.30am and 10.30 am (Starting 01 April).  The program concerntrates on balancing, cornering, braking, weaving in and out of witches hats, instruction on maintaining, servicing and cleaning their bicycles.  In addition there is a weekly participation in low level competition, as well as skill orientated games.  Novices and inexperienced cyclists are accompanied by experienced Junior and Senior members of the Club where appropriate.  All activities are supervised by experienced coaches and club officials.  First aid is present for all sessions.
Level 2 Coach and the Clubs Junior Development Officer, Merv McDonald said that children could come along with any bicyle as long as it was roadworthy.  He said the program which initially runs for 8 weeks could be undertaken at only $2 per week to cover the cost of insurance.  At the end of the 8 week period those who were interested in continuing with competitive cycling could take out a competitive licence at a substantial reduction.
Mr McDonald said that whilst the program was aimed at individual cyclists it was also suitable for inclusion in school programs.
