Urban bike skills Urban bike skills

The Urban bike Skills course is an introduction to riding safely in the suburbs for adults. Embarking on shared paths and quiet roads, this course will introduce you to what’s available by bike in each area.

Have you been to one of our bike skills drop-in sessions, or do you want to take your riding to the next level exploring cycle routes and learning safe road skills in your suburb?

We have planned a 4 hour course, starting in school grounds where we can practice some basic skills before heading out to explore the local area by bike.

We’ll be going through how to choose safe routes, bike handling skills and communicating with other road/path users. By the end of the session you can expect to have learned some skills that you can use anywhere you ride in urban Auckland.

Course numbers are very limited, working in small groups to ensure our instructors can build your personal confidence.
