We don't believe talent makes a best rider in the bunch. What counts is knowing what sort of riding you want to do. Your reasons might be motivated by exercise or social outings, to enjoy the outdoors or even to defy and overcoming goals or fears. Whatever the reason, the good thing about cycling is that its for everyone and the learning never stops.

There's a lot to learn on your first Road Bike. From using gears and brakes, coordinating cleats, building confidence amongst cars and finding the perfect bunch.

The good news is that you don't need to do this alone.


With our Velocio Ambassadors, Chainsmith provides a supportive complementary course aimed at teaching you the basics of bunch riding and knowing your way around your bike.


If you're interested in joining a small group in a three week course with our very own Bev Schroot, please contact us for details.

Depending on your needs, you'll learn a handful of practical skills such as 

  • Using cleats
  • changing gears
  • bunch signals
  • how to change a tube
  • how to ride on roads

Next course has commenced from Saturday 21 July 2018.

Lets get you confident to join local rides and keep motivated all Winter long!
