Smart Cycling Classes
We are working to get more people cycling more often and more safely. Join us for this comprehensive bike education workshop that includes everything you need to become a better, smarter, safer cyclist. All ride abilities welcome! Whether you are just getting back on your bike, a regular commuter or ride for fitness, it is important to know the essentials of bike safety. Learning how to prepare for a ride, the rules of the road and how to manage emergencies will help you become a  more confident rider. Our free classes will be hosted in person and include a set of bike lights and other goodies.

In addition to becoming a smarter cyclist, your new skills will help you be a stronger advocate for other cyclists and help build a stronger cycling community. Plus, you will also become eligible to assist in our education workshops as an instructor and be eligible for an upcoming LCI seminar, (LCI = League Cycling Instructor) allowing you to teach Smart Cycling courses!
