This practical workshop for novice bike riders will help you get ready to ride by improving your skills and confidence while teaching you strategies for riding safely. In a traffic free area you will learn about bike control, stopping, turning and defensive riding techniques. Participants must already be able to ride a bike, but it's fine if you're a bit wobbly. The session will be run by professional bike instructors from Bikes At Work.
This free workshop is part of the Sustainable Homes and Communities Program. Places are limited and bookings are essential.
