Intro to Urban Bicycling with JUMP Bikes
Saturday, October 27, 2018 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm
Come learn the basics of biking in San Francisco at our Intro to Urban Bicycling Workshop. In partnership with JUMP Bikes, we are offering a new 90-minute course covering bicycling for everyday riding in SF, the rules of the road, route planning, how to use the JUMP Bikes system, and what you need to know about riding electric-assist bicycles. The first half of the class will be in the classroom, and in the second half we’ll hit the streets, checking out JUMP Bikes and going for a short group ride. This course is a great class for people who already know how to bike but are considering bicycling more in the city, joining JUMP Bikes, or looking to brush up on urban skills. All participants will get a code good for a $10 credit in the JUMP Bikes system. Additionally, we’ll be raffling off 4 promo codes for $100 towards JUMP Bike rides — that’s 50 rides!
- Helmet fit
- Preparing to ride
- Rules of the road
- Safety skills & tips
- Riding electric-assist bikes
- Route planning
- Locking and protecting your bike
- How to use the JUMP Bikes system
- Boost program for low-income participants
No bicycle is necessary for this class, although indoor bicycle parking is available. We strongly recommend participants bring their own bike helmet!
JUMP Bikes has plans to expand this month. To celebrate their growth to 500 bikes, they are offering promo codes and special incentives to customers in the neighborhoods they serve who attend these classes. This month, they encourage residents who live in District 10 to take the class, offering a special swag bag and an additional $10 credit on their next ride. If you live in District 10 please contact Meaghan@jumpbikes.com to receive your special gift.
