The Squeaky Wheel's introductory/refresher sessions is supported by the City of Yarra and designed to welcome women in a non-sporting, social environment + to show them how easy and fun it is to ride to a destination up to 7km away. The program is aimed at women who have very little riding recent riding experience, who may have stopped riding after children, have never ridden in traffic, would never been seen dead in lycra, and those who would never normally consider themselves as candidates for bike training.
