Westie Women on Wheels
Do you live in the west? Are you one of the thousands of 'interested but concerned' women who would like to ride for transport but don't feel you have the skills or knowledge to start?
We have teamed up with Joyce from CycleStyle to present the Westie Women on Wheels program, made possible with the support of the Maribyrnong Community Grants program. This program is FREE to attend and suitable for people with basic bike skills (not beginners).
If you are looking for the impetus you need to get going, this is the perfect program for you. Delivered over 3 sessions, you will receive bicycle skills training, road rule education and route planning advice for your local area. The final session will take the form of a social ride, introducing you to the safest and most direct routes for amenities in your local area.
You will need a bike in good working order (if you do not have a bicycle, please contact Jette and an arrangement can be made to source a bicycle for the sessions), and to attend wearing comfortable brightly coloured clothing.
Places are limited to 22 participants per session. We are offering all 3 sessions as a single program, we strongly encourage you to complete all three to get maximum benefit. Program dates and times are listed below. The first two sessions will meet at the Footscray Bike Shed, Mills Close, Footscray (next to Building K, Footscray Park Campus of Victoria University).
Saturday 16 May, 2pm - 4pm
Saturday 23 May, 2pm - 4pm
