Cycling in Sydney Australia
The Rusty Rider course is tailored for those with lower confidence and fitness levels. The course runs at a slower pace and develops the skills and confidence required to be an effective bike rider.
Leichhardt Council is running some too, in Richard Murden reserve, which is actually in Haberfield, on Hawthorne Canal. For further confidence building, come on our Bike Leichhardt rides.
yes, rusty riders, got some airtime on the radio today . the councils are paying for the courses? they are free
What they say is that even experienced roadies and commuters could pick up some good tips on their courses.
Yup, would be a good thing for sure.
why are rate payers money from the council . paying for the course . courses are free
Every month the City Of Sydney spends $8,000 on adult bike classes.
When people start cycling for transport it makes the streets safer, less congested, and more pleasant for everybody else.
Cycling is all about positive externalities.
I guess mr 2bg talkback radio host knows about this one as well?
You’re invited to attend a free two hour workshop for supervisors of learner drivers.
Give your learner driver the best possible introduction to driving; their life could depend on it!
The City of Sydney aims to improve road safety with free workshops for supervisors of learner drivers.
This workshop will provide practical advice about:
• laws for learner and P-plate drivers;
• how to use the new Learner Driver Log Book;
• how to plan on-road driving sessions and supervise learner drivers; and
• understanding the benefits of supervised on road driving experience.
Guess it is run by an outside of COS service provider just like BikeWise
who pays for that course to run, teachers. running costs . the local council? the local rate payers ? like the rusty riders course? the radio person was upset about the council paying $8,000 of rate payers money , giving out free courses
I'm a rate payer in City of Sydney. I'm happy for Council to use a portion of my rates to fund cycle training.
I would rather have bikes in the city than more cars.
Read Rob's comment below and you'll understand why Council pays for that.
