Event description

Description

This 5 hour practical cycle skills training session is commissioned by the City of Whitehorse. It is for people who live, work or study in the municipality.

The course is for adults wanting to improve riding skills (off and on-road) and gain confidence on the bike. It covers bike set-up, safety checks, bike handling and traffic riding skills - and promotes safe and responsible bike riding.

The first part of the course will take place in a traffic free environment where participants will practice essential bike control skills. After lunch (BYO), there will be a group ride on local roads with and without marked bicycle lanes.

Two instructors will lead the group to visit intersections and roundabouts, and the group will ride on roads with and without bike lanes. There will be a focus on riding assertively and correct road positioning.

Maximum of 7 places. Free of charge (fully subsidised by City of Whitehorse)
