Good Wheel Spokeswomen
Good Wheel is back for 2015, and this time it's all about the ladies! The Good Wheel Spokeswomen program has been co-funded by a City of Melbourne Community Grant and the Victorian Women's Benevolent trust.
The program, part of our partnership with Good Cycles, will provide women CALD and refugee backgrounds in the City of Melbourne with a working bicycle, helmet and lock plus professional training in bicycle skills, on road riding, route planning and road safety.
Delivered over 5 sessions, the first round will take place on Thursday evenings from 4-6pm on the 5th, 12th, 19th, 26th March & 2nd April 2015. Our program hosts and partners are The Huddle, the North Melbourne Football Club learning and life centre.
A second round of the program will take place on Thursday evenings from 4-6pm on the 30th April and the 7th, 14th, 21st and 28th May 2015..
An important part of the program is the skills transfer and mentoring that takes place between the female delivery team and participants. Women learning from other women in a relaxed and welcoming environment.
We are currently seeking out female mentors to volunteer on the program. You will be an experienced bike rider, available for all (or most) of the sessions and prepared to share your knowledge and skills in helping other women start their bike riding journey.
Please contact Loretta at Good Cycles if you are interested in taking part.
