empty car park or back streets

Discussion in 'New Riders and Riding Tips' started by restive99, Jan 15, 2012.

  1. Does any one know of any quiet car park or back streets around city or inner northern suburbs on the weekend that i can go to practice slow turns and cornering?

  2. Use google maps?
  3. get yourself down to sat morn prac session, get tips on doign things the right way, I take off from DFO Essendon Dan Murphy car park at 8:30am to have a coffee with other riders in St Kilda, happy to have come along, we ride in on citylink OR turn up at 10am at St Kilda. there is a thread on the sessions.
  4. The last couple of pages in the above thread discuss the Latrobe Bundoora campus grounds - they are nice and large, and have a good mix of locations. hardly any cars on the weekend.

    (about 10 years ago I used to put my sister and a postie bike in that back of my van and drive her there so she could practice - before she started riding on the road).

    - Sat sessions are fantastic though!
