Smart City Cycling 2: Maneuvering
Saturday, July 20, 2019 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm
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 here.
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 is required for this class, and a helmet is strongly recommended. There are a number of bike rental shops close to the class location if you need to rent a bike.
