Event description

Description

Do you want to feel more confident about riding and looking after your bike?

If so, this course is for you!

Our workshop is run by a female instructor, and is especially designed for adult women wanting to improve their bike skills.

In a traffic free environment, you'll learn and practice basic and essential bike control skills including: smooth starting, stopping, using gears, scanning, signalling, and emergency stops.

There will be a discussion on planning a route, riding assertively, positioning yourself on the road, and a short demonstration of bike maintenance basics.

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

BOOKINGS ESSENTIAL!

This practical session is run by the professionals at Bikes@Work and is proudly supported by the City of Darebin for people who live, work or study in the municipality.
