Event description

Description

Are you already a bike rider, and looking to boost your confidence when riding in traffic?*

Do you want to start commuting to work or uni? To accompany your children to school by bike? To ride to the local shops to pick up some groceries? Or to ride and meet friends at a local cafe?

If so, this small group workshop is for you!

The first part of the training will take place in a traffic-free area where you will learn and practice basic bike control skills. You will then take part in a ride on local roads to put what you’ve learned into practice.

The workshop covers:

  • route planning
  • road rules relating to bike riding
  • defensive riding techniques
  • road positioning
  • navigating through intersections and roundabouts
  • turning right
  • riding with trams

Please meet at the REAR CARPARK of the Darebin Arts Centre.
