Sydney Bike Skills

our Vision:

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.

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 !!
