Te Horo School discovered that the hill behind their field was in fact school grounds, so they built a bike track!
It is amazing, complete with bermed corners and tabletop jumps. These kids are going to get pretty skilled on their bikes and the health and well-being benefits are many.
We took them out some helmets and got treated to a school assembly, waiata, and a tour of their track.
The school is now looking to finish the landscaping and fencing around the track. A container is on its way to store the bikes. They already have a few bikes and are looking for ways to increase their fleet. I am sure this track will prove to be an invaluable school and community asset.
