Overview

Ebikes are everywhere these days, and they are a fantastic option for getting around town quickly, or for when you need to add an extra boost to your ride. WABA’s Ebike Trail Riding Basics class teaches you the skills you need to ride safely, confidently and considerately on our region’s many trails and multi-use paths. We’ll discuss the differences between Ebike and standard bikes and considerations for riding safely.

In this class, we focus on practicing basic bike handling skills such as shifting, scanning, signaling, gradual braking and weaving. Instructors discuss the importance of trail etiquette while riding on a multi-use path and answer any questions that participants may have about trail riding for commuting or recreation.

At the end of class, we’ll go for a group trail ride, where participants put their newly acquired skills to the test. Have any questions? Email us at education@waba.org
