For 2014 the organizers expect 500 riders - besides the 200 kids joining the Bike & road safety-programm during all year. - including technical & mechanics-training motivates the young bikers to struggle more and train harder - and they all agree" roads safety cannot be accidently -it depends on you.
The children are educated in subjects such as technology, mechanics, nature conservation, route planning and guided tours across the island. The most important topic, however, is road safety education, thanks to Petra Wonisch's tireless lobby work. Petra had lost her son ten years ago in a tragic accident. "We want to teach our children, that they are responsible for their safety”, Wonisch explains. "Helmet, gloves, reflectors on the bike and obeying the traffic rules can save your life. Our motto ‚Safety is not accidentally' is based on a programme that was worked out by the UNO/WHO and is now implemented on Gran Canaria.”
