Haileybury Bike Challenge

Think cycling is about getting from Point A to Point B? Think again!

Our Health & Physical Education Department is excited to announce the Haileybury Bike Challenge!

This exciting new initiative is designed to help get students moving and motivated with physical activity during online learning.

Staying active is very important for a healthy body and a healthy mind. And some healthy competition is always good fun too!

The program aims to help Years 7, 8 and 9 students develop advanced skills to extend bike riding confidence and enjoyment. Commencing on Monday, 24 August, students are able to participate in the program during 'My Active' time within PE lessons or in their own personal time.

Ms Michaela Parsons is showing her students how it's done with this awesome video!

Ms Parsons demonstrates all the skill progressions that the students can expect to learn including correct bike setup, bike control, effective cornering and road safety tips.

There are a few rules you need to follow during the challenge:

  • Ride within a 5km radius of your home (under Melbourne's Stage 4 restrictions)
  • Ride for no more than 1 hour (under Melbourne's Stage 4 restrictions)
  • Make sure you have parent/guardian approval

The program culminates in a final week of skill tests and prizes will be on offer to both Boys and Girls PE classes in Years 7, 8 and 9.

All the necessary resources are on the HP Canvas courses, under the virtual HPE room page, W7&8 and W9&10.

Students may also wish to participate in the Starlight Children’s Foundation Tour de Kids Challenge.

Staff and families are encouraged to sign up either individually or as a team and choose a distance to complete from September 1–30.

Let's get cycling!
