bicycle, elementary school students, safe riding


In the middle of heavy traffic and the increasing number of motor vehicles nowadays, there are several elementary school students who are still relying on their bicycles for daily commuting. Look at Gentan 2 public elementary school in Bendosari, Sukoharjo region, as a good example. Based on the data, 70% of the students are riding their bicycles to school each day. Despite this fact, awareness of safe riding had not reached them yet. Therefore, a session to educate and raise awareness was conducted. The goal is to create a thoughtful and safe environment for the students when riding a bicycle. The methods used in this session are practice- and project-based. The session consists of an introduction and explanations about safety riding, practice on how to ride a bicycle safely, and the distribution of leaflets. Teachers at the school took part in the session as mentors. The results showed that 93% of the students can understand the information about safety riding, and 87% are able to practice how to ride a bicycle safely. The session is proof of a successful way to educate and raise awareness among elementary school students.
