Wednesday 18 December 2019

If you’re heading to high school in 2020 and are keen to ride to school sign up now to a bike skills workshop in Castlemaine.

Mount Alexander Shire Council is partnering with Healthy Heart of Victoria and Bike Bendigo to deliver the low-cost bike-riding workshop series.

“Come along and brush up on your knowledge of road rules, riding skills and learn strategies for safe on-road riding,” said Simone Hooppell, Council’s Healthy Heart of Victoria Heath Broker.

“Over three sessions you’ll build confidence and have some fun along the way,” said Ms Hooppell.

Council is offering the workshops as part of their commitment to support improved health and wellbeing for the community.

“Riding to school gives teenagers independence and regular exercise,” said Ms Hooppell.

“We know this helps with fitness and mental health, and it’s also good for the planet,” she said.

“Along with students starting year seven in 2020 we also welcome children in grade five, six or eight who are interested to improve their bike skills.”

The workshop series includes three sessions held from 10.00am to 12.30pm on Tuesday 7, 14 and 21 January.

Sign up now at www.trybooking.com/BHIEC or search Summer riding workshop for young teens. Cost is $10 and includes all three sessions.

Instructor Nicola Dunnicliff-Wells has a passion for two-wheel travel and is looking forward to seeing more people on bikes.
