Safe Cycling Investigation

Safe Cycling Skills - A statistical investigation


Question: Are Karoro School senior students safe cyclists on the roads?


Recently Room One students participated in a safe cycling skills programme
facilitated by the New Zealand Police.


Students learned about the correct way to wear their bicycle helmet. Helmets
strap need to be tightened under your chin and under your ears.


First we started in the class doing the n check on the bike to make sure the
handle bars,spokes,chain and reflectors were there and nothing wrong with the
bike and it is all good to go.


Also the road rules about the hand signals
And the places to give way and stop  and we also did the helmet
Check.


The second session involved a skills based session on the court.
Students had to ride on the court and use all off the road rules and the hand
signals and ride over these seesaws and we had a balancing contest.   







Following the court session students participated in a road circuit skills session. There
were people placed around the circuit and marks were given for using the following skills:

My marks were:


Approx 1
metre from
kerb
Scanning
for hazards
Checking
parked cars
Look behind
before hand
signals
Correct
hand
signal
Look behind
after hand
signals
% Average
Across Skills
5/5
1/2
3/4
4/6
5/6
1/6
65.5%










One of the collated graphs showed these results.  I think that this shows I was alright and improved.


My recommendation is that I need to improve on looking behind after signaling.
