I have been a cyclist for years and I have enjoyed being able to teach my kids how to ride as well. As my kids are now going to school, I have started to hear the stories from other families about how kids in school face so many pressures from all different sides - whether its friends, studies or just growing up. The impact that this has on their wellbeing is incredible and it flows through to every level and aspect of their lives. I think that this is not something that kids should have to bear alone and the isolation that we all have in this digital world is not helpful.
I have decided to participate in the 2020 Ride for Youth event in an attempt to do my part in helping kids be aware of how they are feeling and what they can do to get help. I also hope that this teaches me some skills so that I can be proactive my own kids and their friends.
