Rider Workshops

‘...I really enjoyed it. Really enjoyed the truck part, it was a wonderful insight to how little they see!! Thank you to CAN and NZTA for putting the workshop on, well worthwhile and I have had some great feedback from 2 others that were there. Would love to get it back in the Bay again next year.’

Share the Road workshops give people on bikes 3 key insights to stay safe when riding on roads where they may meet heavy vehicles. Our videos give an idea of what people on bikes can expect to get out of a workshop. 

    Our key messages are

    • Keep control of your bike and the situation.
    • Ride to be seen and predictable.
    • Choose safe routes.

    I found the course interesting and the topics very relevant and came away examining several aspects of my own riding style… certain aspects of riding such as positioning on the road, signalling clearly and riding confidently, establishing eye contact and checking behind regularly etc are sending messages to other road uses. The messages are I’m a vehicle and I’m behaving like one, and importantly I know what I’m doing.
