Thanks to the project “Focus on the bike” – the winner of the Metalloinvest grant contest “Healthy Child” – new bicycles and runbikes appeared for boys and girls of kindergarten No. 39 “Zolotaya Rybka”.
Remember what the postman Pechkin said when he was presented with a bicycle? “I used to be harmful, because I didn’t have a bicycle, and now I’ll start to climb!” – said the famous cartoon character. So, those who regularly ride a two-wheeled horse are kind and happy, and also healthy! Doctors have proven that cycling is useful at any age: it improves coordination of movements and posture, teaches you to keep balance and enhances endurance, and just allows you to enjoy the fresh air.
Boys and girls with pleasure drove great

Teachers of kindergarten No. 39 “Zolotaya Rybka” decided that cycling should enter the lives of their pupils and took part in the Metalloinvest grant contest “Healthy Child” with the project “Focus on the Bicycle”. The main goal that teachers strive for is to teach six- and seven-year-old boys and girls to ride two-wheeled "bikes" without safety wheels. The program purchased bicycles, runbikes and parking. A number of events are also planned aimed at the systematic training of this sport on the basis of the Orlyonok sports complex and the skatepark in Miracle-Yudo-Grad and attracting families to a healthy lifestyle.
The grand opening of the project, code-named "To work on a bicycle" took place on October 2 in "Orlyonok". Boys and girls, along with their parents and educators, recalled the rules for the movement of cyclists in the city, as they warmed up and tested new "cars". Amazingly beautiful autumn forest, gentle sun, fresh air and fascinating starts were enjoyed not only by children. Parents were also impressed by the event. For example, the Vidyakins family arrived at the starting line in full force: father Oleg, mother Zhanna and five-year-old Maxim.

We parents are very pleased that bicycles have now appeared in the kindergarten. First of all, this is important for children, they will often go in for sports, ”Oleg Vidyakin, mechanic of AK No. 2 of the Lebedinsky GOK autotractor control, shared his opinion.
Senior teacher of kindergarten No. 39 "Goldfish":
– From year to year, our kindergarten takes an active part in the Healthy Child program. We have already implemented three large-scale projects aimed at strengthening and maintaining the health of our children. This year we are launching a new project “Focus on the bicycle” to attract as many children and their parents as possible to cycling. I would like to say thank you to Metalloinvest for financial support. We are sure that the bicycles purchased with grant funds will help our teachers to conduct productive classes, and the guys will get a lot of pleasure from cycling and will be the healthiest.
