South Africa’s Tour de France star Robert Hunter recently took some time out to introduce West Rand school children to cycling as part of the Kidz on Bikes project. Kidz on Bikes is an initiative that promotes cycling in schools in South Africa. The program teaches children basic cycling skills and bicycle safety.
Hunter visited Kenmare Primary school in his hometown of Krugersdorp. After a hero's welcome, Hunter shared some wisdom on the sport and rode with the excited kids. Hunter said, "Discipline, respect and commitment are three aspects positively influenced by the program."
