Event description

Description

This 5 hour practical cycle skills training session is commissioned by the City of Maribyrnong. This session will be run at VU MetroWest, 138 Nicholson Street, Footscray VIC 3011.

This course is for adults who live, work or study in Maribyrnong and who are wanting to improve riding skills (off and on-road) and gain confidence on the bike. The comprehensive training course 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 a break for lunch (BYO), there will be a group ride on local roads with and without marked bicycle lanes. Instructors will lead the group to visit intersections and roundabouts, and will demonstrate how to cross train/tram tracks and do hook (two-part right) turns.

There will be a focus on planning routes, riding assertively and correct road positioning.

Maximum of 7 places. BYO lunch. Cost per person $10 or $5 concession.
