Wingecarribee Shire Council is set to host a series of free cycling workshops just in time for summer.

Council’s Road Safety Officer Melanie Lausz said three Cycle for Active Transport workshops would be held throughout the months of November and December.

“These workshops are designed to help residents who perhaps haven’t ridden for a while rediscover the fun and benefits of bicycle riding,” Ms Lausz said.  “The workshops will focus on a number of areas including increased rider safety, improving cycling skills and rider confidence.”

The free workshops will be held on:

  • Thursday 10 November
    11am to 12 noon
    Bowral Library courtyard
  • Thursday 24 November
    11am to 12 noon
    Moss Vale Library courtyard
  • Thursday 1 December
    11am to 12 noon
    Mittagong Library courtyard

Participants must bring their own bike in good working condition and a correctly fitted bicycle helmet.

Participants should also be able to ride a bicycle without training aids.

“While the workshop is designed for adult riders, children who are accompanied by an adult are also welcome to attend,” Ms Lausz added.

Bookings are essential as places are strictly limited.  Phone 4868 0888 or visit www.wsc.nsw.gov.au/events/onyourbike for further details.

“Whether it’s short trips or just around town, spring and summer are the perfect seasons to rediscover the joys of bicycle riding,” Ms Lausz said.

“And with stunning Highlands scenery at our doorstep there isn’t a better time to get back on your bike!”

Council’s Cycle for Active Transport workshops are being held in conjunction with Council’s Helmet Hero safety rewards competition.
