Urban Street Skills (Wellington) – only 2 more courses to go!

Get skilled up and street savvy with the wonderful Marilyn from En Velo. These courses are designed to get you riding more confidently on the busy streets of Wellington.

This summer we’re lucky enough to once again have Marilyn  and her team of women instructors teaching a series of Street Skills courses. These courses are heavily discounted thanks to the Wellington City Council – only $20 gets you riding like a expert! This is the best investment you could make all summer.
