Up till now, Marrickville residents who wanted to learn to ride on-road safely had to join courses provided by the City of Sydney Council, so it is wonderful to see Marrickville Council follow suit with their own course.

Called the City Cycle Confidence Course, it is for those who can already ride a bicycle.  It is not suitable for beginners.

The 4-hour course covers –

  • “Theory – rights & responsibilities; route planning; traffic & positioning yourself.
  • Off-street – control skills; starting & stopping safely; balance & braking, turning & corners.
  • On-street – cycling in traffic between destinations; establishing sensible positioning; showcasing the benefits of good route selection; typical scenarios.”

Currently there are two courses available.  Both start at the lovely Johnson Park, Constitution Road Dulwich Hill.   Places are limited & you must register to attend –
