The Manaia Bike-a-thon

The sun was shining and the crowds gathered... The day we had been waiting for had finally arrived - our bike-a-thon day! Mums, Dads, Grandparents, Brothers, Sisters, Whanau and friends all came along to cheer us on as we jumped on our decorated bikes and scooters and rode around and around the track! What an amazing effort by so many children - red, hot, sweaty faces as they showed us their amazing riding skills. Josh (Holly's Dad) sizzled sausages on the barbecue to give us more energy and some of us continued to ride afterwards. After a long hour of riding we were presented with our certificates for our huge effort at our bike-a-thon. THANKS to all our whanau and friends for supporting us at this occasion. We look forward to spending our sponsorship money on science equipment for Kindergarten. Check out the movie of photos
- THANKS to Janet (Jakob's Mum) for putting this movie together for us. What great skills our parents are gaining!



Thanks for your patience - Here are the video clips from our Bike-a-thon day... What wonderful skills and confidence our children have on bikes.

I was so impressed how there wasn't a tear shed when there were a few crashes on the bikes.
