Confident City Cycling
Sep 17 @ 10:00 am – 1:00 pm

Ebikes are everywhere nowadays, and they are a fantastic option for anyone who is looking to add an extra boost to their ride or get around town more quickly. You can grab a Capital Bikeshare Ebike from a docking station, or pick up a Lime dockless ebike off of a street corner. With all of these bikes only a few steps out your front door, it is important to know how to be safe and get the most out of your ride. Confident City Cycling teaches you the skills you need to ride safely and confidently on streets, bike lanes and trails alike.

This class is broken into two groups to accommodate different skill levels and interests. The Fundamentals track focuses on practicing basic bike handling skills such as shifting, scanning, signaling, gradual braking and weaving. Instructors discuss the importance of trail etiquette while riding on a multi-use path and answer any questions participants may have about trail riding for commuting or recreation.

The Confidence track teaches hazard avoidance maneuvers necessary while riding on the street and in heavily-trafficked areas. Participants learn skills such as the avoidance weave, quick stop, rock dodge, and instant turn, and discuss considerations for sharing space with other road users.

Each track ends the class with an on-street or on-trail group ride, where participants put their newly acquired skills to the test. Have any questions? Email us at education@waba.org.
