Bicycle is divided into two levels. The project will be more worthwhile if several members in the same club are enrolled in this project. You will learn and practice good bicycle safety habits, enjoy bicycling for exercise and learn about the parts of the bicycle and how to maintain it.
Bicycle Level 1
Discover the joy of riding a bicycle. You will learn all about safety and how to avoid hazards. Activities you can complete in this project are: gaining control of your bike, learning how to navigate in traffic, doing basic repairs and more!
To complete the level, you must complete a minimum of seven activities each year. This book can be used for two years. Contact your project leader or 4-H Agent for more details.
