Cool Kid on a Bike Re-Launch
1 March 2023 – Today, Bicycling Empowerment Network and Pedal Power Association re-launched our “Cool Kid on a Bike” programme at Ukanyo Primary School in Masiphumelele! We were honoured to have CEO of PPA Neil Robinson and Ukhanyo Principal Michael Tyhali welcome us, as well as Premier Alan Winde and Ricardo Mackenzie – new MEC of the Western Cape’s Mobility Department who stressed the importance of road safety when cycling. The highlight of the event was a presentation by Lukholo Badi to grade 4 learners, educating them about safe cycling practices. We were also delighted to have Mr. Ismail Teladia from WCED and Mr. Vince van der Bijl from MasiSports speak about the benefits of cycling and how the “Cool Kid on a Bike” programme can help kids stay active and healthy. We thank everyone who joined us today and especially the kids who showed their enthusiasm for cycling! We look forward to empowering more kids to ride safely and responsibly.
