Looking to get back on the bike but not too sure how to get into the swing of it? Want to find an environment to brush up on your skills and not feel intimidated? Want to learn more about yourself and your bike?

If you can say yes to any of these questions then why not sign up for the women’s only Gear up Girl Workshop! These workshops are aimed at women of all ages, shapes and walks of life; to come together, learn from the best, share stories and ask questions.

Each workshop is tailored to build your skills in a controlled environment, learn basic mechanic skills and riding skills, improve your body to get the most out of your cycling and talk to a specialist in the cycling industry.

The Heart Foundation will also be at the following workshops to give some advice on nutrition.  All workshops are FREE!

Interested in hosting a Gear Up Girl workshop?

Bicycle NSW Gear Up Girl workshops are all about getting more women out on the bike, building confidence and knowledge, having fun, and networking with bike-minded women. They also aim to help build positive relationships between women who ride and local organisations that offer cycling related products and services.

Gear Up Girl workshops cater for beginner to intermediate female cyclists, are fully supported by Bicycle NSW, and are a fantastic way to engage with the female cycling community. Gear Up Girl workshops are flexible in providing a mix of bike maintenance skills, riding and safety skills, and discussion about female cycling related topics such as nutrition, fitness, choosing product & sharing cycling experiences.
