Back to Basics -- Get Rolling
If you’re new to bicycling or just getting back on your bike after years out of the saddle, we’ll help you gain the skills necessary to ride safely and confidently. This entry-level course prepares new and returning riders for our Urban Cycling Techniques course.
Students will learn basic bike handling skills and maneuvers, including:
• stopping and starting
• how to shift the gears smoothly and effectively
• proper braking technique
• where to ride in the road
• road infrastructure and bike facilities
Learn laws and safety as well as on-bike handling drills. We will apply our newfound skills on a group ride using neighborhood streets and the Burke-Gilman Trail.
Course is designed for those who already know how to ride a bike but need additional practice.
Bring a bike in working order and a CPSC approved helmet. Bring a snack and be sure to wear weather appropriate clothing.
