City Cycle Confidence Course
Sun. 25 June 2017, 9:00 am – 1:30 pm AEST
This course is designed to develop skills and confidence required to be an effective bike rider on the road. You will learn how to develop your riding skills and boost your confidence in a quiet off-road location before proceeding out on road as a group on a course that showcases fantastic route options throughout the Inner West Local Government Area that only regular riders know about.
It is designed for people intending to use a bicycle as a means of transport and establishes the key principles for effective on-street riding as well as created opportunities for participants to put them into practice in real life scenarios on the road.
Classroom: rights and responsibilities, route planning, traffic and positioning theory
Off street: control skills and practice
Group riding: cycling in regular traffic between drill sites establishes sensible (effective and consideration) positioning as well as showcasing the benefits of good route selection
