Blokes on Spokes workshops are a new development in the City of Stirling following on from their successful Women on Wheels program.
The City of Stirling is holding its first Blokes on Spokes workshops on Sunday May 5, 2012 between 9:00 AM and 12:30 PM with follow-up workshops on Sunday May 20 and 27, 2012 between 9:00 AM and 12:20 PM and 1:00 PM and 4:00 PM. So plenty of options there.
The City of Stirling is also holding “Rusty Cyclists” workshops for those who haven’t ridden in a long time. The Rusty Cyclists workshops are being held on Sunday May 20, 2012 between 9:00 AM Â to 12.30 PM and between 1:00 PM to 4.30 PM and again onÂ Sunday May 27, 2012 between 9:00 AM to 12.30 PM and between 1:00 PM to 4.30 PM. So four workshop times for rusty cyclists.
The cost for each workshop is $15.00 for City of Stirling residents and $30 for each worksop for those blokes who live outside the City of Stirling.
Interested readers can register for the workshops by visiting the City of Stirling website.
The idea of the Blokes on Spokes workshops are for men of all ages to get together with liked minded men to improve their riding skills or those who haven’t ridden in years to get a handle on the “deadly treadly” again. I think this is a great initiative by the City of Stirling and whilst I am often a critic of the City and its dealings with cycling infrastrcuture I am happy to give them my full support with this initiative.
I hope these first workshops become regular events and other Councils follow suit.
My thanks to Joanne Burgess the Travelsmart Officer at the City of Stirling for fulling in the details for this posting.
