Basics of Better Biking
(an on-bike class, 4 hours):

The Basics of Better Biking class is designed for adults who want to get back into bicycling, improve cycling skills, learn to ride more effectively and safely in traffic, and/or participate in a large-scale benefit ride. This four-hour weekend session provides guided instruction with simple practice drills in a parking lot, easy-paced riding on local roadways for short distances, and group-discussion breaks along the way. Topics covered include bike and helmet fitting, starting and stopping your bike in traffic, shifting gears, scanning and yielding, choosing the correct lane position in the road, handling intersections, and more.

A bicycle in good working order and a helmet are required.

Preregistration is required.

This class is intended for participants 18 and older. For minors wishing to take the class, please contact Price at

Sometimes we have to cancel a class due to low registration. We will let you know no less than three days in advance if the class is canceled.
