‘SHE RIDES’ PROGRAM HELPS BAYSIDE WOMEN GET BACK ON THEIR BIKE
Cycling Australia’s ‘She Rides’ program gets rolling in Bayside and 40 other locations around Australia.
Cycling Australia’s ‘She Rides’ program will help women in Bayside and Darebin regain riding skills, improve their fitness and create a social network of friends in the local community. Following the success of the pilot programs in 2014, and then 2 programs in 2015, a national ‘She Rides’ program will again be rolled out in Bayside and other locations in every state across the country in 2016.
The program, was created following findings from a Female Stakeholder Consultation by Cycling Australia that identified that most women would ride more if they felt safer, more confident in their abilities and had an organised group to join.
Having just completed 2 Summer programs, one in Bayside, Elwood, the other in Thornbury, in Darabin. There will be another 2 SHE RIDES programs running in Spring 2016.
One in Bayside beginning on Saturday November 5th 2016 9.30am-11.30am for 7 consecutive weeks.
One in Darebin beginning probably on Saturday 1st of October 2016 for 7 consecutive weeks.
