Cycling Course in Yarra – starting 11 May

A free course starting in May aims to give people tips on staying safe while cycling. It will do this by asking participants to see cycling from a motorist’s perspective.

Presented by five experienced commuter cyclists, the course gets into gear on Wednesday 11 May. Split into two hour sessions held each Wednesday (from 5.30pm-7.30pm), the course will take place at the Fitzroy Town Hall over five consecutive weeks.

The first four sessions will provide advice on how to cycle without dedicated lanes, how to dress, and how to carry cargo and kids, secure your bike, gain health and fitness, and stay safe.

The final session will get participants onto the road and rail system to experience just how effective Melbourne’s bike and rail combination can be. Course numbers are limited to 24 people.

For bookings, contact Frank Fisher on 0428 862 693. For further information, contact Kate Simnett, Sustainable Transport Officer, on 9205 5734 or at Kate.Simnett@yarracity.vic.gov.au
