Stu­dents from re­gional schools go on a bike hike

Seymour Telegraph - - KIDS SPEAK -

Stu­dents from Avenel Pri­mary School, Sey­mour Col­lege and Nagam­bie Pri­mary School re­cently took on the chal­lenge of rid­ing more than 100 km along the Great Vic­to­rian Rail Trail.

Though short­ened to two days due to in­clement weather, stu­dents still un­der­took a chal­leng­ing ride.

On the first day, stu­dents rode 55 km on a hilly course mak­ing their way from Molesworth to Alexandra and then on to Yea.

On day two, stu­dents rode from Yea to Tal­la­rook in glo­ri­ous weather, tak­ing in the beau­ti­ful sights of the Goul­burn River.

The three-day bike hike truly was a great col­lab­o­ra­tive ef­fort be­tween the teach­ers, stu­dents and par­ents of the three schools and pro­vided a unique op­por­tu­nity for ev­ery­one to mix and min­gle while en­gag­ing in a great phys­i­cal chal­lenge.

Over the years, the ride has been strongly sup­ported by Sey­mour Po­lice and they again as­sisted with some of the road cross­ings on day two.

Over­all, the ride was an out­stand­ing suc­cess and ev­ery­one is ea­gerly look­ing for­ward to the 2019 ride.
