Riding is a healthy, fun and economical way to get around.

Learn to ride

If you are new to riding or just want a short refresher, Let's Go can arrange a riding skills session to suit your needs. This is best done in small groups. 

The Let’s Go Cyclist Skills Training is an in-school programme for primary and intermediate students (years 5-8) delivered using the national BikeReady guidelines. We also offer Let’s Get Going Cyclist Skills Training - fun skills for under fives.

Keep an eye on the Hello NP Facebook page to keep you up to date with all of our biking events.

You can also contact us for information on any of our programmes or events.

Report broken glass

To ensure our district is cycle friendly, we need to know of hazards like broken glass. Report hazards and remember to include the address or a clear description of where the glass or debris is.

Report an issue

Report a crash or near miss

Information about crashes or near-misses helps us and the Police to determine if there are particular areas that are accident prone and if changes need to be made to reduce the risk of accidents (e.g., signage, road surface etc).

All crashes, including near misses, should be reported to the Police.
