Beginner Bikes Skills for Women in Casey
When most of us learn to ride we learn to balance and go, but do we ride in a safe, confident manner? It doesn’t matter if you only want to ride on the bike path, or are looking to get on the road, we’ve put together a series of cycling skills sessions to give you more confidence with your riding. You can do all the sessions or pick and choose the right ones for you.
We won't make you do anything you don't want to do.
We don't mind what kind of bike you have, or what your experience is like, you just need to be able to stay upright on your bike! We'll help you build confidence, learn the basics, and guarantee a fun time.

To join Wheel Women's Beginner Bike Skills, you’ll need to:
Own or have access to a bike and helmet
Be able to balance and move on your bike.
