Smart City Cycling 3: Road Practice

Saturday, May 21, 2022 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm

This class is offered in English and in Spanish. Para español haga clic aquí.
In this class, we’ll go on a guided group ride to practice street-riding skills on increasingly high-volume streets. This class is the third in the Smart City Cycling sequence, and Smart City Cycling 2: Maneuvering is a prerequisite.

Skills covered in this class include:

  • Taking the lane
  • Changing lanes
  • Left turns
  • Lane Positioning and Signaling

All participants MUST either bring a bike or rent a bike in advance. Bikes will not be available for rental at the class. If you don’t have a bicycle, we will send information on how to rent one for the class. A rental costs $21.20, and if you need financial assistance we can cover the cost for you.

COVID protocols: If you’re fully vaccinated (meaning two initial doses of either the Pfizer or Moderna vaccines or the J&J vaccine and a subsequent booster) you are not required to wear a face covering. If you are not fully vaccinated, or do not wish to disclose your vaccination status, we encourage you to wear a well fitted mask for the duration of the class. We also encourage students and instructors to complete a self-health screening before arriving to the class (details will be sent in the confirmation email). We will have masks, hand sanitizer, alcohol spray, and wipes on-site for anyone to use.

Please contact Chester Hartsough (chester@sfbike.org/‪415-323-0564) with any questions about this program.
