Urban Cycling 101: a Two-Part Class for Adults and Teens

Day 1: Classroom Workshop:

This fun workshop is taught by an instructor certified by the League of American Bicyclists. Learn basic rules of the road, how to equip your bicycle, fit your helmet, avoid bike theft, ride after dark, and prevent common crashes. 2-hour, indoor workshop for adults and teens, no bike required.

Day 2: Road Class:

Join us for a half day of bike riding! This is the second part of Urban Cycling 101. We’ll cover on-road, on-your-bike practice sessions, working in small groups with our certified instructors to improve your handling skills, learn crash-avoidance maneuvers, and ability to bike confidently on any street. A functional bike and helmet is required, drinks and snacks provided.
