The Huddle runs various initiatives to improve the well-being and independence of local residents.

The Huddle not only helps develop young people through sport, but it also runs various initiatives to improve the well-being and independence of local residents.

One of the latest programs is an introductory bike program designed for women who live and commute in the City of Melbourne.

The program, designed in partnership with the City of Melbourne and The Squeaky Wheel, will take place over four consecutive weeks and provide young women with the basic skills and confidence to use bikes as a means of independent transport that is good for the environment and their health.

Not only will the girls get to form new friendships and learn how to ride a bike (some of them for the very first time) but they will also be gifted with their brand new bicycle at the end of the month.

The sessions will involve practical learning, both indoor activity and outdoor training on the bikes and will culminate in a fun group ride along the great bike paths around Melbourne

There are twelve places for females aged fifteen years and over who live and commute in North Melbourne or a surrounding suburb.

To register contact Sarah Bourke on 9320 2475 or email

The introductory bike program starts next Thursday 5th June and will run every Thursday from 4 – 6pm for the month of June.

for four weeks, between 4-6 pm at The Huddle, 204-206 Arden Street North Melbourne.
