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."

The Victorious Pymble Ladies' College Mountain Bike Team 2014
Sydney Bike Skills coached Pymble Ladies' College Mountain Bike Team to a first place podium finish at the recent Jetblack NSW All-Schools Cross Country Mountain Bike Championship at Yellomundee.
This is the second year in a row that the girls have dominated the competition. The girls won all three divisions, Junior, Intermediate and Senior.
As a result, Pymble LC were named Champion School in 2013 and 2014. This means that not only did they win the girls point score, but they also topped the boys point score as well. A great achievement !!
