The following was received from Joondalup Council, requesting volunteers to assist 15-16 year old kids to assemble bikes on 20th May:

Good Morning Cycling, BMX and Triathlon clubs.

 

The City of Joondalup has partnered with the Bicycle Network to deliver a program next Tuesday where approximately 300 children aged 15-16 will be given a free bike.  This  program aims to encourage these young adults to stay physically active through riding their bike.  The participants will be provided with a bike (either Mountain, BMX or Road), helmet and lock as well as a free app which they can use to track their Km’s travelled.

What’s the catch?

 

The participants must put the bike together themselves.  The program will provide everything they need however as part of the activation and engagement strategy the kids do have to build their own bikes.  Along with the representatives from the Bicycle Network and the City of Joondalup youth services team we are seeking two volunteers from club land who would be able/willing to donate their time on Tuesday 20 May between 8am and 4pm to assist the kids put their bike together, knowledge of bicycle mechanics is preferred.  Volunteers are encouraged to bring along any club promotional material they would like to display or distribute to these new bike riders.
