Pushy Women - Collingwood
So you know how to ride a bike, but you never actually do? If you've got basic bike riding skills but not the confidence to use them, then Pushy Women training is for you!
We're thrilled to be able to present the third of our Pushy Women Training series for the City of Yarra on Sunday May 15th! Pushy Women is a sociable and friendly training program designed to give you all the confidence you need, and quite possibly some new bike-riding mates! Each session focuses on local roads and bike paths so you can get familiar with the area where you want to ride.
In this two and a half hour session you'll get to know a group of fabulous local women just like yourself, all while honing the skills you need to safely get around by bike.
We'll start off in a traffic-free environment, in the grounds of Collingwood College, and practise all the basic bike skills you need to safely move onto the roads. There'll be plenty of time to ask questions in a supportive and friendly group. Moving on to some quiet local roads we'll learn how to use the bike lane confidently, navigate roundabouts, make hook turns and safely get across intersections.
Of course there'll be the chance to sit down and enjoy refreshments and we'll also be talking about what to do when you get a flat tyre, route planning around Collingwood and beyond. There'll be plenty of time to answer questions as they come up, whether they're about bicycles, accessories, riding at night or finding friends to ride with.
The Pushy Women Yarra training session is on Sunday May 15th at 10:00am at collingwood College.
Suitable for women who are able to ride a bike but wish to improve their confidence. All participants must be over 12 years old and any under 16 MUST be accompanied by a guardian who is also enrolled on the course. The course will be conducted in a traffic-free environment, on bike paths and on roads.
Don't have your own bicycle? Did you know that the City of Yarra are part of Melbourne Bike Share? In fact, there is a Bike Share station at Yorkshire Brewery in Wellington St, Collingwood so if you don't have your own bicycle why not borrow a blue bike?
