Come learn more about crash avoidance, lane positioning, and bicycle maintenance! Our Confident City Cycling class includes an on-bike skills session and a group road-ride.

During this class you will review bike and helmet fit, as well as practice skills including: body bike separation, brake modulation, weight distribution, and quick hazard avoidance. After the on-bike skills session the class will go on a 60 – 90 minute group road-ride to practice strategies for crossing big intersections, riding on fast roads, reading traffic patterns, and road conditions.

Classes are structured to give participants education and experience navigating different traffic patterns, intersection layouts and types of bike infrastructure.

Free Healthy Ride bike rentals are available for participants ages 16+ to use during class instruction. If you’d like to use a Healthy Ride bike, you can request a rental on your class registration.
