The Good Wheel Project is a collaboration between The Squeaky Wheel and not for profit social enterprise Good Cycles. The pilot program staged in February 2014 was initiated by the City of Melbourne.

The program is delivered over 4 or 5 sessions, in which participants are provided with a bike in good working order, a helmet, a lock, reflectors and travel smart maps. Participants also receive instruction on basic bicycle maintenance, including how to perform a bike check before riding, how to grease the chain, check the brakes, inflate tyres, remove a wheel and change a puncture.

The group are assessed for their riding skills and ability, and take part in off road skills sessions to improve their balance, braking, riding one handed (for signalling), changing gears, slow riding, starting and stopping.

The program also delivers 3 classroom sessions that outline safe riding strategies, road rules, signage meanings, negotiating intersections, roundabouts, hook turns and guidelines for riding near trams.

Participants learn to plot a route for a ride on the travel smart map, and are guided on how to best plan a route for riding in the city. The program also includes 3 rides of varying distances and complexity, building up to a long ride around the city. 

Before graduating , participants undergo assessment with a quiz (usually passing with flying colours!) and all report a significant improvement in their skills, knowledge and confidence after the program.

The Good Wheel Program was initiated by the City of Melbourne, and is delivered by a partnership between The Squeaky Wheel Good Cycles. Referrals to the program are provided by AMES, lights and locks come courtesy of Knog, and helmets from Nutcase

Since the pilot, a number of rounds of the project have been delivered, each with a different intake group. Find out more below.
