Bathgate Park School pupil Gemma Bell (9), of Dunedin, rides a bike on a new painted track at the school, accompanied by BikeSchool NZ owner/coach Scarlett Hagen as fellow school pupil Jack Grace-Ngaro (10) runs nearby.
The Dunedin City Council has supported the painting of lines in a more than 100sqm "wheel track" area of the school, to simulate road markings of intersections and a roundabout, to improve cycling safety.
School principal Katrina Robertson said pupils had greatly enjoyed themselves trying out the "wheel track" yesterday, although heavy rain disrupted the school’s first regular Friday "wheels lunch", during which the track could be tried out for the first time.
