Cycling is increasingly popular across Australia. Workplaces and councils are recognising the health, financial and environmental benefits of encouraging employees and residents to get on their bike.
Training workshops can help people feel more confident to cycle. The Department of Environment and Climate Change NSW in partnership with AustCycle is offering free Cycling Training Vouchers to increase cycling skills for potential bike riders in NSW.
The Cycling Training Voucher will cover the cost of one training course for 6 to 12 people by AustCycle accredited teachers, consisting of three two-hour sessions (run on separate days). Alternatively, the voucher can be used for three one-hour sessions for two or three beginner riders, with two instructors.
Your organisation can apply for a Cycling Training Voucher to train up to 12 people - worth $360 (plus GST)
The Cycling Training Voucher is for:
- local councils and community groups wanting to offer cycling proficiency classes
- employers wanting to help staff safely get fitter, be more productive and reduce their greenhouse gas emissions.
The Cycling Training Voucher is valid till 30 September 2009.
