When was the last time you rode a bike? Maybe you’ve never given it a go at all? Either way, it’s never too late to get in the saddle. There are plenty of resources in Wellington to help you start your cycling journey.
Don’t let the cost of a bike put you off. There’s nothing wrong with borrowing a bike while you’re still finding your way, or renting one before you commit to some wheels. Renting is a great option if you’re keen to try out mountain biking, or have a cruise on an eBike.
Getting a handle on the basics of balance, brakes and steering might be the first step on your journey. Practice makes perfect, and a Pedal Ready course could get you on your way. They’re free and available on weekends, or during the week if you have a bike buddy at your workplace.
Like any hobby, biking is better with a friend. Got a buddy you’d like to take along with you? Sign them up on the Bike There journey with you and get them to come along on a quiet trail ride, or use each other as motivation to exercise and stay fit on a bike.
