BikeReady helps teachers to support student learning in two ways. Get easy access to bike skills training by professional instructors and use curriculum resources in the classroom.

Outcomes include more young people with bike riding as a viable transport choice. They learn to share our roads. And they're active and healthy. Participation in BikeReady adds an authentic context for learning. Teachers and students can explore well-being (hauora), empathy, the transport system and active citizenship. BikeReady aligns with the New Zealand Curriculum, physical activity guidelines and the National Administration Guidelines.
