Session 1 on the 14 of June saw 13 enthusiastic ladies, some who ride bikes and some who were interested in riding.
We started the evening with Yvette from Sport Southland speaking to us about the health benefits of exercise especially cycling. She also introduced us to the Green Prescriptions that Sport Southland facilitates. May of those present had not heard of the Green Prescription before.
The second half of the evening was a presentation by Nick Harris. He spoke to us on buying a bike, what to look for and about the importance of correct size of bike. Nicks talk was so informative and inspiring that there are now two ladies buying bikes.
Tickets are still available for session 2 on June 28th at the ILT Velodrome, Corp Rm 4, where Jane from Road Safety Southland and Erin one of our local female bike riders are going to be giving presentations.
Please register your interest with the office at Cycling Southland, phone 2173215 and tickets can be purchased on the evening for $7.00. Supper and Free gift included.
