They have certainly accomplished an enormous amount.

-collected data on a weekly basis to gauge how students travel to school and have entered the data into HandsUp, a reporting tool from Bicycle Network. Because of their perseverance we are now a GOLD SCHOOL, the highest possible rating.

-organised our ride/walk/scoot to school day, where they provide a healthy breakfast, organised a ‘dress up your bike’ competitions and invited local member Tim Baxter to join the fun.

-teamed up with Dr Cranky’s bike hospital and to support his initiative they wrote persuasive letters asking for donations from bike shops in the area. Just last week they received a large parcel from 99bikes, containing bikes seats, tubes, bike oil and other goodies.

-worked with Bicycle Network and Port Phillip Council to create 4 Active Travel Paths so that our community can travel more easily to school. The paths will be launched at the start of Term 4.

To celebrate their achievements we invited Bicycle Network to set up their Modular Pumptrack for the Year 4 children next Wednesday for a whole day to improve their bike handling skills, build their confidence and to just have some fun!

From all of us here at Parkitect Australia we say a BIG congratulations to the kids at St Kilda Primary school – we hope you had a fantastic day of fun!

    My first time riding a Parkitect Modular Pumptrack was at Mt Buller.

    The first thing that shocked me was how perfect the pump track was. Every shape was flawless, every roller was the right size.

    Every time I went around the track I felt as though the track had me locked in place safely.

    Our decision to purchase and install a Modular Pumptrack has been supported throughout by the excellent backup and service provided by Shaun and Sonja at Parkitect.

    The equipment arrived on the day promised and we were able to install the track in two days, just in time to have it up and running by the Christmas holiday season.

    Kids are on the Modular Pumptrack from 8 am till 6 pm daily, mums and dads think it is amazing to see their kids more active. Even grandparents have a little go too!

    The Parkitect guys were great to work with, just got in and got the job done.
