CycleWise Confidence Training - (Intermediate)

For intermediate riders*

Presented by Bikes at Work, this 4 hour program will help you improve your skills, build your confidence and learn safety tips for riding on busy roads and paths.

Part 1 (10-12noon): In a traffic free area we will cover route planning, bike and equipment safety checks, bike control skills, emergency stopping, traffic skills and gears.

Lunch break (12-12:30pm): BYO picnic lunch

Part 2 (12:30-2:30pm): Discuss cyclists' rights and responsibilities on the road, safe cycling techniques, positioning and etiquette. A group on-road ride around Preston and Preston West to put theory into practice. Where to position when there's no bike lane, avoiding car door collisions, where to wait at an intersection, how to turn right, approaching and safely going through roundabouts, crossing tram tracks and more! If time allows, we'll even show you how to fix a flat tyre!

Proudly sponsored by the City of Darebin for people who live, work or study in the municipality.

Program is FREE for concession card holders - we just have a $20 refundable booking fee to discourage no-shows!
