With summer in full swing now is a great time to dust off your bike, learn how to ride or progress your cycling skills. Auckland Transport are offering free Adult Bike Skills training courses to groups around the region and we thought this might be something that interests you.
The Adult Bike Skills courses are free training courses for people looking to get on a bike for the first time or for those who would like to develop their confidence and bike handling skills (Bronze course), for those wanting to progress out to shared paths and quiet roads (Silver course) and for those wanting to ride on busier roads (Gold course). There is also a Bike Maintenance course which will teach you how to fix a flat tyre, how to check your bike is safe, how to make minor adjustments and more.
If you’ve got a group of people together who would like some bike skills training then just register online and we can work with you to schedule a course in. Courses can be scheduled at a time and location to suit the group (subject to contractor availability). You only need ten people for the Bronze and Bike Maintenance courses and six for the Silver and Gold courses and we also have the option of tailoring sessions to suit the needs of the group. If courses are not fully booked out with your group then they may be opened for public registrations. If you haven’t got minimum numbers then contact us to discuss options available.
