Turramurra Cyclery is more than just a bike shop. While we do happen to sell bikes, we like to think we sell a lot more than that. We live and breathe cycling, partly because we believe in having fun and living a healthy lifestyle, but also because we have created an experience where likeminded people can build new friendships and support each other in their fitness endeavours, no matter how big or small.
So whether you have just bought your first bike and are new to road riding, feel your confidence on the bike isn’t where you would like it to be, or are looking at building on your fitness and performance abilities, our Personalised Ride Coaching Programs will help you realize just how great it is to be on your bike.
Learn To Ride Session 1 is with you and your instructor only and aims at building up the skills to ensure you feel confident on the road, and will teach you:
Maintenance – getting a flat tire is one of those inevitable things that if you aren’t prepared, can be an expensive, and time-consuming task. We will teach you how to replace an inner tube quickly and effectively, re-engage your chain if it slips off, and adjust brake calipers if these get bumped.
Road Awareness and Group Skills – Learning the calls to let your fellow riders know of any changes to the road surface (potholes, sticks etc), and learning how to ride with multiple people are both valuable skills that will improve your confidence on the bike and open you up to the opportunity of our scheduled calendar rides which run during the week.
Gearing – for some, getting your gear ratios right to feel smooth on the road can hinder your enjoyment, so we pay special attention on guiding you through the basics of choosing the right gear for the right occasion, so you never feel stuck half way up a climb.
