Training Communities

GoodWheelProject.jpg

There is nothing we enjoy more than sharing our love of riding with communities of people who stand to benefit the most from the freedom and opportunity a bicycle can bring.  Read below about two initiatives to date that have trained people from marginalised communities to ride safely in the streets of Melbourne.  We are open to working on projects of any size or scope, and have experience working with participants from non English speaking backgrounds. If you would like to discuss a new project idea, contact Pip to set the wheels in motion.

\"The journey of a thousand miles begins beneath one's feet.\" Lao-tzu (604 BC - 531 BC)

We find inspiration in these words when conceiving and delivering programs helping people onto bikes. Rather than asking people to 'sign up' to a pre existing notion of what bike riding looks and feels like, we strive to bring the bike riding experience to people in their own lives and communities. The Squeaky Wheel staff and committee are trained Austcycle teachers, and everyone participating in our activities are insured thanks to our partnership with Cycling Victoria. Read below about some of our existing training programs, or get in touch to talk about how we can develop a program that suits your needs.
