Sydney Bike Skills
To create a company that provides excellence in teaching and coaching bicycle skills (both on road and off road), by making it fun and safe. The outcomes are more proficient riders, and the improved health and wellbeing of participants. Another goal is to provide commuters with the skills necessary to ride to work safely and therefore help reduce traffic accidents and car fuel emissions.

"I recommend this program, particularly for the stage 2 students, as this is an excellent support for bike safety units. The staff are very professional and extremely confident in their management of the students. My group would have happily continued their lesson for another couple of hours!” Jules McKenzie- Assistant Principal North Narrabeen Public School
“Sydney Bike Skills ran a most practical course with our primary school students that covered cycling, basic bike maintenance and road safety. The students improved their riding skills and gained valuable knowledge during their sessions. The staff had a great rapport with the children, were highly organised and effective." Margaret Lesley-Assistant Principal Willoughby Public School.
In December, Lisa and twelve other coaches from around Australia and New Zealand took part in the first accreditation of level 2 mountain bike coaches within Australia.
We spent 7 days living in the accommodation based at the Super Centre in Runaway Bay, Qld. The coaches took part in a number of practical coaching sessions and theoretical presentations. It was a fairly rigorous process which culminated in the completion of a 2 hour written exam.
All coaches were also required to practise coaching their class mates. The 5 core skills that were taught were the manual, power assisted manual, rear wheel lift, track stand and attack position(ready position).
Lisa passed the course and is now one of only 10 UCI Level 2 Mountain Bike Coaches in Australia. This qualification is recognised by the International Cycling Union (UCI), World Cycling Centre and Mountain Bike Australia.
"Thanks. I think this has significantly improved my mountain bike skill level and psychology to attempt more demanding exercises."
