6 June 2023 – Today we are in Bishops Lavis for an exclusive Advanced Mechanical training workshop with our SMME partners from the northern suburbs!
We had an AMAZING time on 9th May 2023 hosting an Advanced Bicycle Mechanic course in Ocean View, made possible through the Department of Economic Development and Tourism: Western Cape project. It was wonderful to see so many skilled bicycle mechanics from the area come together to learn and share their knowledge. Thank you to everyone who participated and contributed to making this event a success. Special shout out of thanks to our BEC James Esterhuizen and Mastoera Communities Wellness Solutions. Together, we can continue to empower our community through cycling!
February 2023 – Congrats Gary! Your hard work and dedication in the Navy have earned you a well-deserved reward. Now, you’ll be able to keep the wheels turning with your newfound bicycle mechanic skills from the 3-week course at the Bicycling Empowerment Network. Pedal to the metal! #RetirementGoals #BicycleMechanic #BicyclingEmpowermentNetwork
3rd February 2023 – The Basic Skills Workshop organised by Bicycling Empowerment Network was a resounding success, attracting a diverse group of community partners from the cycling community. The workshop covered a range of topics, including business skills, social media marketing, safe cycling practices, and hands-on bicycle mechanical training. The business sessions were especially impactful, with participants gaining valuable insights into creating and growing sustainable cycling enterprises. The social media training provided attendees with the skills they need to effectively promote their businesses online. Meanwhile, the safe cycling sessions emphasised the importance of proper road etiquette, protective gear, and bike maintenance, ensuring that everyone who attended had the knowledge they need to cycle safely. Finally, the hands-on bicycle mechanical training allowed participants to put their newly acquired skills into practice, leaving them confident in their ability to perform basic bike repairs and maintenance. All in all, the Basic Skills Workshop was a huge success, with participants leaving feeling empowered, informed, and motivated to take their cycling businesses and passion to the next level.
On 15 – 19th August 2022 our Bike-4-All team spent a few days conducting safe cycling training, preparing future young riders for a lifetime of safe cycling!! This in support of a Qhubeka Charity bicycle distribution initiative in Barkly West – Northern Cape. Over 300 enthusiastic learners have been trained in safe cycling and basic bike maintenance before receiving their new steeds.
