CAMS Cycling Collective - Beginner Skills Course

Were you one of the many who took up cycling during isolation? Whether you hadn’t ridden a bike for years, or you encouraged your family and friends to take it up, bike riding has become so popular that it was even difficult to buy a bike during isolation!

Safe cycling is something that CAMS is passionate about, so CAMS has brought back a Beginner Skills Course during July. If you know someone who needs to refresh their cycling skills, or they’ve never ridden on the road or in a group before, this is just the ticket! CAMS beginner course is specifically designed to accommodate novices and social riders who wish to refresh, update and/or advance their bike skills.

CAMS’ aim over a 2-week period is to build rider confidence through tips, techniques and practice so that you can ride safely in a group, improve bike handling skills and be a better cyclist overall – all under the professional guidance of CAMS' experienced and accredited coaches. The course schedule is:

CAMS BEGINNER SKILLS COURSE – from 18 July

2 x Outdoor Skills Sessions – Saturday 18 & 25 July 7:00am

Learn the skills to keep you safe and give you confidence to ride more – mounting and gliding, dismounting, braking correctly, gear changing, slow riding, straight-line riding, one-handed riding. Plus, practice signals, drinking, reaching into pockets, u-turns, cornering, climbing and emergency braking.

2 x Indoor Sessions – Wednesday 22 & 29 July 5:30pm

Correct gear usage, pedal technique, body position and improve physical fitness.

1 x Outdoor Group Ride – Saturday 1 August 5:30am

Put it all together on a group ride – refine your group riding skills, road safety, bunch etiquette, and feel the increased confidence!
