Riding towards New Horizons

23 Nov 23 | By pp-admin | News Wheel

After a break, we are really excited to be able to offer the New Horizons program again.

This course perfectly complements our other offerings for adult riders such as Cycle Well and the Easy Social Rides.

Adults who cannot yet ride can enroll in our Cycle Well course where they will learn to ride and start gaining confidence in areas with no or low traffic. As part of the course, they can also borrow a bike and helmet if they need to.

Next, riders can sign up for New Horizons where they will gain the confidence and skills needed to ride around town.

Both courses are run by accredited trainers with many years of experience who are passionate about helping more people on their bikes.

Of course, if you already know how to ride, you can join New Horizons directly, skipping Cycle Well.

“New Horizons caters to riders who have not ridden for long periods or are not confident and want to become more confident,” says Wendy Studman who runs the course.

The next New Horizons course will start in February and last for six weeks. It will cover bike checks and basic bike maintenance, with the support of Bike Culture bike shop in Gungahlin. Participants will also enjoy a series of rides of increasing length and difficulty.

After New Horizons, cyclists will be ready to join their families and friends on most gentle rides or they can take part in one of our Easy Social Rides. These are designed for less experienced riders and those returning to cycling or anyone lacking confidence riding in a group.

Pedal Power also offers learn-to-ride courses for children and longer rides for more experienced cyclists.
