Maureen Deuchrass (Share the Road), Senior Constable Linda Graham (Gore Police), Brehan Cairns (cyclist for the Radio Sport - Ultimo team) and Reece McDonald (sponsor, Ricoh), shared with us important cycle and scooter safety messages and introduced us to the new Share the Road mascot 'Glo-Bro' (see if you can spot his picture in the photos below).
We also got to see Brehan (pronounced Brennan) wearing each of the special jersey's that cyclists compete for to get the chance to wear during each stage of the 1000km, 6-day race around Southland, and his really special, carbon-fibre (looks big but is very light-weight) racing bike:
|Sprint Ace - most points for sprints|
|King of the Mountain - most points for hill climbs|
|Under-23 (years old) race leader|
|The ultimate jersey - the overall Tour Leader|
|Aaron, a Year 3 pupil, could lift the bike with one hand!|
GOOD LUCK NEXT WEEK, BREHAN! WE WILL BE CHEERING FOR YOU!
And be safe when out on your bikes or scooters everyone!!
