I specifically posted in this Women's Cycling thread because I have attended many skills sessions from various providers and bike shops and it's ALWAYS interesting to see that time and time again, the majority, if not all, are women participants. I do apologise for cross posting. Haven't had many registrations for these workshops by posting through our usual mediums.
I've been riding for a few years now and although I would call my self experienced, there always something new to learn and to ask about road rules and defensive riding. As bike enthusiasts I'm sure you all know someone you'd love to convert to learn riding a bike (i.e namely my sister) or someone who would love to teach their child how to ride that bike they bought them for Christmas!
Workshop attendees residing in Port Phillip do have priority, but everyone is encouraged to register. any probs, PM me.
