What you’ll learn: The principals of vehicular cycling. Increase your confidence by knowing that you are riding safely and legally.

In the Drive Your Bike! class cyclists will gain a full understanding of how to safely drive a bicycle in a variety of traffic situations. You’ll learn how to perform a bicycle safety check, fix a flat, and make essential “get me home” repairs. Crash avoidance techniques are discussed, demonstrated, and practiced. We’ll take to the road and navigate the urban street-scape including multi-lane roadways and intersections.
