But the kids know almost nothing about bikes. They have zero understanding about how bikes work, never perform preventative maintenance, and get a shop to replace the inner tube whenever they have a puncture [most punctures are pinch flats, caused by having insufficient air in the tube and running over a sharpish stone].
As it happens, I also have a job [a labour of love, with zero monetary reward] teaching Conversational English to all the kids at the school. I decided to try to combine these two things.
I devised a class exercise in which I brought my road bike to the class, along with materials to help me to call out the names of the various bike parts.
I have conducted the class a couple of times...managed to keep the kids interested, and got them to accurately attach sticky labels to all the bike parts. Included in the exercise...I brought my bike shoulder bag along...emptied it out, and showed them tools, tyre levers, tiny pumps, replacement tubes, puncture repair kits.
Ah well...it is a start!
