Tour de Lunch (bike riding)

Bike Riding is a great way for your family to have fun and exercise together. It's a sport to enjoy for one's entire lifetime.  As well as the health benefits and gross motor skill development, Bike Riding can support children in their development of independence. Greater independence can also be granted once children have learned to ride a bike safely.

Gisborne Montessori School was successful in obtaining a $500 grant from VicHealth (via Macedon Ranges Shire Council) to purchase bicycles for a lunchtime bike riding program utilising the fire access “bike” track established on the school property. Students have the option to apply their bike safety and riding skills during specified weekly lunch time plays using a suitable GMS bicycle or by bringing their own bike to school.
