It is a great time to be out on the O’Keefe Rail Trail during the Christmas-New Year holidays, and for this family there were extra reasons. Santa had brought new bikes for the children, so where better to learn to ride those bikes than well away from busy road traffic.

With Christmas being celebrated at their rural property near Axedale, the only nearby road is the busy McIvor Highway. So the adjoining rail trail was the perfect safe place for the children and adults to be out together, as well as a bit of exercise for the family’s aging dog. From these lessons, could there be a future Australian cycling champion in the making?
