Did you know that Oulu has over 900 km of pedestrian and cycling paths? Or, that one in five trips in Oulu are made by bicycle in the Spring, Summer, and Autumn months, and even in the winter more than 1 in ten trips are made by bike? (Euronews; BBC).

If you (your spouse, or friends) are interested in exploring these cycling paths in the summer (and winter) but don’t know how to cycle yet, then sign up for the City of Oulu 3-day bike school for beginners which takes place on the 27th, 28th and 29th of May, and will last for one hour each day.

The City of Oulu bike school is for people who are complete beginners, and no prior cycling experience is expected or required. If you do not have a bicycle, a limited number of bikes will be available for participants to practise with. During the bike school participants will receive guidance and support in learning the basic skills needed to cycle a bike safely and independently.

Please note that these bicycle schools are intended only for adult participants, and the language of instruction is English.

Please only sign up quickly to secure your place, and only for one group.

Please cancel your participation if you cannot attend as places are limited to 10 participants per group.

Group 1: May 28th, 2 and 30th from 15:00 – 16:00
Group 2: May 28th, 29 and 30th from 16:00 – 17:00
