Q & A

What do I need to bring?Participants are to bring their own bike and Australian Standards approved helmet. Children must be accompanied by, and are the responsibility of, a parent or guardian.
How far are the bikes rides?Each course is approximately 6km. It is not essential to ride the full distance as there are numerous routes (i.e. shortcuts) to travel back to the start if required.
Where and what are the skills sessions and games?At each event, we will have qualified bike instructors to facilitate skills development activities and bike games for riders of all ages. These will be running continuously throughout the afternoon, and can be joined at the beginning or the end of the ride.
Do my kids need to be able to ride to take part?If your child does not know how to ride, they can take part in the skills sessions, and, depending on the instructor availability, may be able to receive coaching on learning to ride. If they are able to ride at a reasonable level off competency, then, under your supervision, they could take part in some or all of the bike quest ride.
How long will it take?We would expect most families to take around 2-2.5 hours The riding component would take usually less than half an hour. If you spend a little time (approximately 10-15 minutes) at each stop you will easily complete the course in this time.
How do I win prizes?We will give each registered family a worksheet with questions on it. When you answer a question correctly you will gain an entry in the prize draw. The prize draw will be on the day, close to 5:00pm. We will contact you if you win and are not present at the draw.
Is it suitable for all ages?Essentially, yes. However, as there are a number of road crossings, there will be other riders and the same potential hazards that anyone may encounter in public, we advise you to consider the age, riding capabilities and number of children you are required to supervise. The bottom line is, you are responsible for your children.
