It was exactly a year ago when the duo signed up for a beginner bike session for adults sponsored by the former North Shore City Council and both women have been enjoying regular bike rides ever since. Ms Geo rides from her Belmont home at least twice a week and says cycling to work to beat the traffic and avoid parking problems was always a dream. I've found it so liberating. I get free exercise but more import- antly I have proved a point to myself. I am also concerned about the environment so it helps me with that too,'' she says. Ms Cooper agreed to sign up as she lacked confidence and was scared to get on a bike. Now she regularly rides around her Northcote Point home for exercise and fun and thinks about doing the Otago Rail Trail soon. My son is really impressed with me. I used to walk the hills but now I can ride them easily. People always wave and say hello and it's a low impact exercise for my knees and hips,'' she says. Both women say the sessions they attended were a tremendous confidence booster. Auckland Transport is offering free beginner bike sessions for adults on Thursday and March 3 in Takapuna . The practical sessions cover basic bike handling skills and safety. Visit www.aucklandtransport. govt.nz for more information.
