Getting New Experiences with Safe Routes to School

I was bicycling but I wasn’t safe

SUN Cycle taught me how to be safe

Wearing a helmet when I’m riding alone or with my mates.

That is a lot of experience get the chance to know about ghost space

and its importance.


Now I’m safe, I know how to communicate with drivers and pedestrians.

Using hand signals for me is more important.

Stopping, right and left hand signals in my life are prominent.


I’m not scared of flat tires anymore like before.

‘Cause SUN Cycle became a sunrise in my riding life.

Pump the tube, find a hole, clean the surface, put some glue

Wait for some seconds, put a patch…it’s like a game now.

I can play it anytime!
