Taqwa School Cycling Program

The Cycling program was all about getting together with our Islamic community and staying fit and healthy. We rode from Spence to Melba then to Lake Ginninderra, exploring nature. We stopped at the wastewater plant just behind lake Ginninderra and learnt about the water and how it gets recycled. During this trip, we learnt about teamwork and basic bike riding skills. We practiced balance, coordination, and built up our stamina. It was a great opportunity to get outdoors and take in the fresh air. We also learnt about bike safety and maintenance. We learnt the A,B,C’s of bikes and how to oil and fix the chain. 

Our experience of the cycling program was something to remember. We enjoyed and cherished the moments with our friends and teachers. We rode together and had so many different experiences together. 

These are our fellow teammates explaining their experience with cycling.
