Smooth cycling
You and your bicycle become one!

With the course “Smooth cycling” you become again one with your bicycle!

Smooth cycling with the bicycle

Be at one with the bike, with the rhythm of your breathing, heartbeat and the movement of the pedals. The wind whistles through your ears and is soft on the skin. A feeling of freedom and euphoria moves you along from horizon to horizon, on and on to your goal, and after a break, you continue..

Yet you´re not quite happy with some aspects of your bicycle, because there a few things that bother you when using it. It refuses to do what you want, like a stubborn donkey: mounting, gliding, starting off, changing gears, riding up/downhill, taking curves, slowing down steadily, stopping, dismounting. There´s always something to stop you enjoying your ride.

After completing this course, you´ll regain your love of cycling. Not just out of enthusiasm, but motivated by matured skills and naturally fluid motion on your bike!

In 5 double lessons you´ll learn how to be a smooth and skilful cyclist again, in a variety of easy to learn sessions.

We start practising in areas free of traffic, and then move to proper cycle paths. The course is supplemented with basic instruction about bicycles, how to adjust them and road traffic regulations. Upon request you can learn the latest about GPS navigation (online and offline), receiving information on your personal choice of cycle routes around Vienna. Of course, we also offer customised information on training, clothing and biking equipment, tailored to your needs.

The first part of the course is held at the “Fahrradverleih” bicycle rental on the Danube Island, directly next to the Reichsbrücke. As the course progresses, we will go further afield. We might even meet up for lessons in Klosterneuburg or in the Lobau.

You can also book lessons „At sight“ or „Taylored“ for exact scheduling later on or specify dates and times at the start. A double lesson costs €40.- and you decide if you want to continue or if you´ve learned enough for your needs.

Bring your friends with you! The course price will be divided by the number of people taking part. It´s more fun to learn biking together than on your own!

Smooth cycling on an Ebike/Pedelec

Ebikes (pedelec, electric bicycle) are often marketed as “bicycles with tailwind” or “motor assisted bicycles”. They are however “motorcycles with pedal assistance” or “motorcycles with human range extender”, requiring different handling than normal bicycles when accelerating, and whose action differ from ordinary bicycles when weight shifts or during braking, due to their different mass centre, higher weight and differing geometry.

But what a great feeling when you start off! Effortlessly moving along is just magic! You´d enjoy it even more if you were better acquainted with the ins and outs of ebikes.

Smooth cycling on a roadbike

Roadbikes are the aristocrats of the cycling world, and deserve closer attention. Just the sight of the slim tyres, the narrow, raised saddle and the handlebars turned down low make you realise that this machine can´t wait to test the laws of gravity.

And it really is true, no other conventional bicycle offers such elegance, souplesse and economy of means when expressing its affinity with speed. Experience moments of pure magic on your racing bike. Gliding silently along, it´s almost as if you´re floating, heartbeat, breathing and pedal strokes are in a permanently renewed state of harmony, combatting the wind, the route and the uphill gradients.

A racing bike never makes you feel that it is consuming all your energy. So you´ll venture out even further, exploring your surroundings to their full extent. It´s all about you and your physical limits, here and now. A wonderful combination, don´t you agree?

In a total 10 hours of lessons with a variety of practice runs, you learn racing bike skills from scratch.

We start practising in areas free of traffic and then explore the higher speed ranges typical for roadbikes. The course is supplemented with basic instruction about roadbikes, how to adjust them and traffic regulations. Upon request you can learn the latest about GPS navigation (online and offline), receiving information on your personal choice of roadbike routes around Vienna. Of course, we also offer customised information on clothing and roadbike equipment, tailored to your needs. If you want we can even dedicate one double lesson how to change a tube.

The first part of the course is held at the “Fahrradverleih” bicycle rental on the Danube Island, directly next to the Reichsbrücke. As the course progresses, we will go further afield. We might even meet up for lessons in Nußdorf, Hietzing, Sievering, etc.!

You can also book lessons „At sight“ or „Taylored“ for exact scheduling later on or specify dates and times at the start. A double lesson costs €40.- and you decide if you want to continue or if you´ve learned enough for your needs.

Bring your friends with you! The course price will be divided by the number of people taking part. It´s more fun to learn smooth roadbiking in a group than on your own!
