Secure Bicycle Locker Program
The Secure Bicycle Locker Program is a Ministry of Transport initiative, managed by Bicycle New South Wales, integrating bicycle and public transport travel. Safe and secure bicycle lockers have been installed for use at selected CityRail and Sydney Ferries throughout the network.
The bike storage makes it easier and more enjoyable to combine bicycle and train or ferry travel to work, school, shop or just get about town - whilst helping to protect your bicycle from theft and vandalism.

Ride Leader Training Courses
Following the success of the 2007 Ride Leader Training Course held on 5 May, Bicycle NSW will be planning more courses for 2007. The aim of the Ride Leader Training course is to increase levels of knowledge and skill in leading recreational rides. By increasing the level of knowledge and skill among a greater number of Ride Leaders, Bicycle NSW - consistent with our Mission – seeks to encourage more members of our community to enjoy the benefits of cycling through:
Better organised rides – more satisfaction for participants
Better planned rides – improved levels of safety for participants
Better conducted rides – reduced levels of risk for participants and organisers
The courses are provided free of charge to Bicycle NSW members and includes morning and afternoon tea and lunch. Assessment includes both practical and theory on the day and some pre-course work.
To register your interest in the course, please contact Donna Little on email firstname.lastname@example.org phone 9218 5411.
