Bunch cycling skills lessons

Bike Auckland

Keen to feel more confident cycling in a bunch? Want to learn skills to help keep you safe? Maybe you have entered the Lake Taupo Cycle challenge for the first time? Then this is for you! As part of Auckland Transport’s Summer Cycling Programme, we invite you to register for three sessions designed to help you ride more safely and with more confidence in groups of cyclists.  Auckland Transport has engaged a group of experienced cyclists and the support of Mt Eden Cycles and other reputable cycle shops to bring this programme to you.  To register or to ask any questions please contact our Skills Coach, Daymon Shack, at bunchridingskills@gmail.com

Bunch riding is cycling in a group, possibly as small as two people, (ie you and one other). Bunch riding offers advantages over riding solo. Not only do you have company, but you can draft off the person in front of you reducing the effort you have to make. The group will go faster than a solo rider. To enjoy the benefits of being in a bunch you need to feel comfortable riding close to other cyclists. There are a number of skills that can be easily learned to help give you confidence and keep you safe.
