Bike Courses

Learn from the best!

Council is offering 4 bicycle skills courses for Whitehorse residents to improve your riding skills and gain confidence. For all courses, participants will need to bring a bike in roadworthy condition and a helmet.

Novice Course for Adults

This course runs for 2.5 hours and is perfect for those who lack confidence on a bike, or those that are relatively new to riding, or haven't ridden in many years. This course covers the correct riding technique and essential bike handling skills. It is conducted in a traffic-free area.

Intermediate Course for Adults

This course aims to build confidence when riding on paths and roads.  Participants will learn about safety, road rules, and practical techniques for riding safely on the road. The first part of this course is run in a traffic-free area, followed by an on-road ride in the local area.

School Holiday Program for Primary School Students

This 2 day course is for children aged 9 to 12 who are Whitehorse residents. The course is ideally suited to children that can already ride a bike, and who have NOT completed the Bike Ed program at their school. For full course details, and to book, see the link below:
