Campus Micro-mobility

Ever wondered what the rules are with bicycles and e-scooters on campus grounds?  Have you considered what the difference is between pedal bikes and e-bikes? 

Join Patrick from Bicycle Queensland (BQ) as he takes us through an introduction to micro-mobility and simple bike maintenance to help us become more comfortable and confident moving around campus.

Learn some easy and expert tricks for tuning your machine to ensure it runs smooth, is safe, and you’re ready for anything the journey can throw at it. 

Topics that will be covered:

  • Rideables and bicycles, a simple comparison
  • Planning your ride (weather, road/path surface conditions and essential equipment
  • Micro-mobility & Bike check for safety (safety and maintenance)
  • Improving interactions in urban environments (signaling, braking and being predictable)

Registration essential: a Zoom link will be emailed to registered participants the morning of the event. You can follow the event on Facebook here.
