Confident City Cycling

Saturday, May 5, 2012


Participants of all levels are encouraged to attend these 3 hour classes which will have options for multiple skill levels ranging from simple bike handling skills and using trails, to learning avoidance maneuvers and riding with traffic.

The "Trails" group will discover basic bicycling information and on-bike skills such as: bicycle selection, fit, inspection, gearing, cadence, clothing, accessories, bike handling basics like starting and stopping, riding straight, scanning and signaling.

The "Traffic" group will explore vehicular cycling principles, roadway positioning, lane changes, turns and parking lot drills to learn avoidance maneuvers.

On-line study is strongly recommended prior to arriving at class by registering and completing the material on www.bikeed.org.

Participants must bring their own bikes, helmets, and water. Clipless/SPD shoes/pedals are not recommended for this class. Participants will be required to sign liability waivers.
