Pushy Women Learning #1
You haven't ridden a bike in a while? You don't have much experience or don't feel comfortable riding in traffic? You want some fun while you get back on your bike with a crew of likeminded women?
The Squeaky Wheel, Catherine Deveny and her Pushy Women are here to help! Pushy Women learning is a gentle introduction to the world of riding that will leave you invigorated and inspired to keep your wheels in motion. The 2.5hr introductory session includes:
- FREE COFEEE on arrival (tres important) from St Ali North
- Free bicycle tune up and fitting session from Velo Cycles
- A story sharing session lead by our Pushy Woman host
- Instruction on basic maintenance (ie - how to determine if your bike is safe to ride, and when it's time to take it to the bike shop for some love)
- A very short ride down the Capital City Trail off road path to a private training space
- A one hour lesson covering balance, braking, riding one handed (for signalling) changing gears, slow riding, starting and stopping
- Tips and rules for riding in traffic including how to navigate intersections, roundabouts, car doors, trams (and tram tracks!)
- High fives all round
- A ride back to St Ali North for a delicious lunch if you care
