Event description

Description

City of Whitehorse is offering bike skills sessions (Bike Belles program) for teenage girls who live or study in the City of Whitehorse. These are small-group sessions that aim to help participants to feel more comfortable on the road and inspired to ride a bike.


Training will be led by two female AustCycle-accredited instructors and will build on bike handling skills and improving on-road riding awareness. Participants will learn a range of skills including ride preparation, riding safely, safety checks, emergency stopping, using gears, scanning, signaling, riding on different surfaces, road rules & signs, riding on paths and basic repairs.

The first part of the session is run in a safe, traffic-free area and is followed after BYO lunch by a leisurely but supported bike ride on shared paths, local streets and busier roads.
