Confident City Cycling

Register Cost Location

Overview

Confident City Cycling teaches you the skills you need to ride safely and confidently on streets, bike lanes and trails alike.

This class is broken into two groups to accommodate different skill levels and interests. The Fundamentals track focuses 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 participants may have about trail riding for commuting or recreation.

The Confidence track teaches hazard avoidance maneuvers necessary while riding on the street and in heavily-trafficked areas. Participants learn skills such as the avoidance weave, quick stop, rock dodge, and instant turn, and discuss considerations for sharing space with other road users.

Each track ends the class with an on-street or on-trail group ride, where participants put their newly acquired skills to the test. Have any questions? Email us at education@waba.org

Adult Learn to Ride and Scooter Training

Register Cost Location

Our Learn to Ride class is fun, intuitive, and very successful! This class is for adults who have never ridden a bike before or have tried to learn and have not been successful. Our League certified instructors take students through a progressive curriculum, with the goal of riding with two pedals by the end of the session.

Our approach is fun and intuitive, but it also requires hard work. You will be riding for nearly three hours. We take breaks every hour. This class is for you if:

  • You are at least 18 years old;
  • You have never tried to learn how to ride a bike; or
  • You have tried to learn and have not been successful.

A rental bike and helmet for the day are included with your registration. Be sure to provide your height in feet and inches so that we can provide you with a bicycle that fits you.

This event will also include a FREE scooter training thanks to the generous support of Lime and Bird. Test drive a scooter and learn how to use them safely, on street, on trails, wherever!

Please wear comfortable clothes, and bring the following: water, snacks, and weather-appropriate outerwear.

Only students who have reserved space in the class may attend. Unfortunately, walk-up students cannot be accommodated.
