This on-bike class will focus on the bike-handling skills you need to safely and confidently ride in urban traffic. The class will be conducted in a car-free space, and is the second in the Smart City Cycling sequence. Smart City Cycling 1: Classroom or Intro to Urban Bicycling is a prerequisite for this course. If you have not already taken it, you can register for Smart City Cycling 1 here, and for Smart City Cycling 2 below.

Topics covered include:

  • How to ride with one hand in order to signal
  • Scanning over one’s shoulder while maintaining a straight line
  • Crash-avoidance maneuvers

This class will prepare you for Smart City Cycling 3: Road Practice, in which you will take your new skills out to streets.

A bicycle and helmet are required for this class. Bikes will not be available to rent at the class.
