Women's Bike Skill, Fun and Friendship program - Beginner Learn to Ride program - running from April 2021 and will conclude at the end of Jun 2021

 Spreading the joy of riding a bike is a passion for Mara, one of our BUG members who also is a cycling coach.

With the support of a Community grant from the Whittlesea council, free learn to ride sessions for complete beginners have been made available to women in the local area.

The emotion and incredible sense of accomplishment can be seen in the smiling faces as the participants grasp that first moment of balance on two wheels.

Tears are not uncommon.
