Event description
Feel completely comfortable on your bike in Groningen with these series of workshops at City Central!

About this Event

We all know that Groningen is a cycling city, but not for everyone. Many new residents could do with help learning to cycle, getting comfortable on a bike again after many years, or just learning the rules of the road here.

During these series of workshop, you'll get the hang of it in no time!

Beginners

Getting comfortable on your bike starts with knowing its different parts and how to use them. Together with your local cycling buddy, you'll discover how a Dutch city bike is made and you'll work on your balance during the first workshop.

During the second part you'll practice you're newly acquired knowledge and skills, you'll learn how to use the breaks and you'll hit the road signalizing like a local!

These workshops are individual. You'll get one bike friend who'll guide you throughout the whole process and answer all of your questions.

Practical information

Dates

Beginners must register for both the first and second part, taking place respectively on the first and second Sunday of the month. Your bike friend we'll be present at City Central on both days.

These are the options for 2019:

  • 6 & 13 October *
  • 3 & 10 November
  • 8 & 15 December

* NOTE: Due to the Groningen 4 Mijl race in the city centre on the 13th of October, the second part of the Beginners workshop in October will be moved to another day. You'll have time to sit with your cycling buddy on the 6th of October to discuss a new day and time.

The workshops start at 11:30 at City Central (Akerkhof 2a) and end around 12:30.
