Adult Essential Skills, 23 November at Meadowbank.
This course is $35 : designed for those people who can balance and ride a bike, but who would like to improve confidence and basic skills to enjoy riding more often. Covers the basic skills to ride a bike on cycleways or quiet back streets, with practical emphasis on increasing confidence. Starting, stopping, cornering, one handed riding (for signalling) slow riding, manoeuvring. Also a session on basic maintenance where everyone will get the chance to change a rear tyre, and topics such as cleaning the bike and checking it for problems will be discussed.
