Bike riding clinics: January, St George/Sutherland

David Chan, Acting Senior Physiotherapist, Department of Family and Community Services (Ageing, Disability and Homecare) has asked that we help circulate this invitation for kids and teens to attend a bike clinic in January.  Please contact David directly if you are interested:

This January holidays I will be running a week-long learn to ride clinic for children to learn how to ride a standard two wheel bicycle.

The clinic is aimed at children from about 7 to 15 years old with either Down syndrome or autism, and preferably who live in the St George and Sutherland shires (although there can be some flexibility with this).

The clinic will provide tips and techniques to help develop the skills to be able to ride a bicycle, and an opportunity to practice with support.

The two weeks that the clinic will be on are: 
January 6th to 10th at Moorefield Girls High School, Kogarah
January 13th to 17th at Caringbah High School, Caringbah.
The clinics will last for one hour, and will be from either 9am-10am, or 10am-11am.

If you already have a bicycle, please bring it along. If you don’t have one, please contact me as I have several bikes that may be suitable to borrow for the week. However you must bring along a helmet for your child.

For more information or to sign up for a week of the clinic, please email me at or call me on 9566 5000
(email is easier as I am often out of the office). 

Feel free to pass this information on to anyone who might be interested.
