If you haven’t been on a bike for a while, or want to take your confidence and bike handling skills to a new level, then Adult Bike Skills training with Paul Odlin is for you.
Adult Bike Skills workshops are fully funded by Christchurch City Council and range from providing the basics to more advanced skills required for urban riding. Workshops are delivered in a series of three with each session building on the skills learnt from the previous.
Paul provides personalised advice in a supportive environment with the aim of giving you the skills and confidence to ride across different road environments. Workshops are done in small groups of two to six people. You can also arrange a group session of your own with whānau, friends or colleagues.
Sessions are open to anyone aged 16 years old and over.

This workshop will get you riding independently with ease and confidence in a traffic-free environment. This session will take around 60 minutes.
Take your riding to the next level by embarking on shared paths and on road. This course goes through how to choose safe routes, on-road bike handling skills and how to communicate with other path/road users.
The course will start with practising some basic bike skills and a summary of the first workshop, before heading out to explore the local area by bike. By the end of the session you can expect to have learned skills which you can utilise to ride on shared paths, separated cycleways and urban roads. This session will take around 60 minutes.
This course will include a summary of the previous workshops and covers basic road position and turning right and straight through intersections. It will then progress to busier roads and cover riding in on-road cycle lanes, negotiating traffic lights and more complex intersections. This session will take around 60 minutes.
Get in touch with our instructor Paul Odlin to arrange a group booking.
Each course can be tailored to suit the knowledge and skills of the participants.
