One Hour Workshops

These 1-hour, interactive classroom courses are perfect for introducing your employees or members to the concepts of biking for transportation and encouraging a healthy commute. Each class is hosted by a certified instructor who will teach the basics of bike commuting, crash avoidance, and bicyclist rights and responsibilities. You will also learn how to outfit your bike, how to take a bike on transit and how to bike smart while having fun.

Alternate subjects for one-hour sessions are also available such as: Avoiding Bike Theft, Bike Commuting Basics, Biking After Dark, How to Choose a Bike, Shopping by Bike, and more. If you are interested in hosting one of these sessions please fill out the application below.

I just wanted to say “Thank You” for coming to present the Bicycle Class to our employees this past week. I have received so many positive comments about the class. Beginner riders appreciated the information. One person told me he didn’t know he was riding unsafely but now he is glad to know where to be on the road (and off the sidewalk). Even the experienced riders said that they were reminded of important tips. This is a great program and you did an awesome job presenting.
