Gain the skills to negotiate traffic with confidence!
Is riding a bike to uni, work, to the local shops or around town your goal? Then this the opportunity to get practical, personalised advice in a safe, supportive and fun environment!
Join the UC Sustainability Office for two free workshops designed to get you out and enjoying Ōtautahi Christchurch by bike (and saving some serious $$) this spring:
Session One | Tuesday 20 September will be covering cycle safety skills and techniques in an off-road setting.
Session Two | Tuesday 27 September will be putting these into practice on the cycleways and quiet roads surrounding UC.
It’s recommended you attend both sessions (if you can) to get the most from the experience.
A few details:
- Sessions are held on and around UC’s campus during the lunch hour (12pm – 12.50pm)
- There is no cost to attend
- No bike? No worries! Loan bikes and helmets can be provided on request.
The sessions will be led by Paul from Odlin Cycle Coaching, run in collaboration between the UC Sustainability Office and the Christchurch City Council.
Registration is essential as spaces are limited. Email email@example.com for more details and to register.
