Bike skills workshops - coming in Autumn 2023

Do you already know how to ride a bike, but need a skills or confidence boost? Or perhaps you'd like to learn some practical skills to keep your bike in top shape. Our low cost, small group workshops are run in Spring and Autumn and are the perfect opportunity to get out on your bike more often and meet other local bike riders.

Stay tuned and sign up to receive regular updates on upcoming workshops.

Free monthly bike checks

Our Free Monthly Bike Checks at Reservoir Leisure Centre and WeCycle Bike Hub in Northcote are the perfect opportunity to show your bike some love. Whether you've just bought a second-hand bike, you're taking your bike out of the shed for the first time in a while, or you just want to learn more about your bike, our friendly bike mechanics are here to help.

Find out more and book in for a bike check at Reservoir or Northcote.

Our bike checks are co-funded by the Victorian Department of Transport.

One-on-one bike skills training

If you need personalised training to learn to ride a bike we offer one-on-one training for all residents of all ages throughout the year (depending on COVID restrictions).

Our friendly instructors begin with the absolute basics like how to walk along with a bike, get on and off gracefully, start off, pedal and stop safely.

Recipients of Centrelink payments or people in social housing may be eligible to participate in this training program at no cost. For more information and bookings see our Eventbrite registration page.
