Urban Cycling Techniques - Ride On

We’ve designed this class to help bicyclists gain the knowledge to make informed decisions while riding in traffic and the confidence to balance caution, assertiveness and the skills necessary for safer urban riding.

Recreational or transportational cyclists who want to learn to interact positively and safely with urban traffic will learn:

  • traffic laws as they pertain to bicyclists
  • proper helmet fit
  • how to give your bike a safety inspection
  • practical riding skills, effective braking techniques, scanning, avoiding obstacles and signaling
  • on-bike crash-avoidance techniques

We will practice on-road skills such as:

  • lane positioning, communication with drivers and left-turn techniques
  • group riding skills
  • bike fit and nutrition as time allows

First session is presentation only -- no bike required.

Second session is on-bike on Saturday from 10 AM- 3 PM

Optional half-hour League of American Bicyclists exam afterwards. Our “Via Bike” handbook, a reference for the skills learned in this course, is included.

Bring working bike and helmet to second session.  Bring your lunch and be sure to wear weather appropriate clothing.
