CycleWise Skills Training - (Novice/beginner)

For beginner/novice riders*

Presented by Bikes at Work, this is for people who have not ridden in a long while or who have recently learnt to ride a bicycle. In the 2 hour traffic-free program you will improve your basic bike control skills, build your confidence and learn how to perform bicycle and equipment safety checks.

We will cover bike set-up and equipment safety checks, mounting and dismounting your bike, starting and stopping with control, balance, riding straight, steering your bicycle around corners and obstacles and gears.

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!
