Sydney Bike Skills
To create a company that provides excellence in teaching and coaching bicycle skills (both on road and off road), by making it fun and safe. The outcomes are more proficient riders, and the improved health and wellbeing of participants. Another goal is to provide commuters with the skills necessary to ride to work safely and therefore help reduce traffic accidents and car fuel emissions.

"I recommend this program, particularly for the stage 2 students, as this is an excellent support for bike safety units. The staff are very professional and extremely confident in their management of the students. My group would have happily continued their lesson for another couple of hours!” Jules McKenzie- Assistant Principal North Narrabeen Public School
“Sydney Bike Skills ran a most practical course with our primary school students that covered cycling, basic bike maintenance and road safety. The students improved their riding skills and gained valuable knowledge during their sessions. The staff had a great rapport with the children, were highly organised and effective." Margaret Lesley-Assistant Principal Willoughby Public School.
I just wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed the beginner MTB skills clinic on Sunday 22 Feb,2015.
I thought I might have been a bit too advanced for the beginners skills clinic, however on reflection I gained a lot from it and I’m glad I stayed in the beginners group.
I really appreciated the focus on technique such as riding position when cornering and braking, as well as how to best position yourself and your bike to get over obstacles.
I thought the course was well organised and flowed really well! I think we were given just the right amount of time to learn new skills and then practice them. I felt like you divided your time up between all participants evenly and I know that I gained insightful individual coaching from you. Thanks!
In my opinion, what we practiced in the morning translated really well into what we did after lunch so for me that was a really good progression to put my new skills into practice.
I thought the course length was appropriate and I also found the discussion about safety gear, tyre pressure, adjusting your seat and cleaning your bike valuable as well.
I’m sitting here trying to think of some constructive criticism for you but I don’t have any! Maybe if you could control the weather a bit better next time… to be honest I wasn’t even bothered by the rain.
The course will be well recommended by me to my family and friends.
PLEASE NOTE: The last Fundamentals and Intermediate MTB skills clinic is being held at Jubes MTB Park on Sunday November 8. Full details can be found under 'Events' on this site.

The Victorious Pymble Ladies' College Mountain Bike Team 2014
Sydney Bike Skills coached Pymble Ladies' College Mountain Bike Team to a first place podium finish at the recent Jetblack NSW All-Schools Cross Country Mountain Bike Championship at Yellomundee.
This is the second year in a row that the girls have dominated the competition. The girls won all three divisions, Junior, Intermediate and Senior.
As a result, Pymble LC were named Champion School in 2013 and 2014. This means that not only did they win the girls point score, but they also topped the boys point score as well. A great achievement !!
