Smart City Cycling 3: Road Practice
Saturday, July 24 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm
This class is in English and Tagalog.
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. The cost of bike rental (if needed) will be covered by you, the participant. If the cost of a bike rental (about $20) is a challenge for you, please email Eliana@sfbike.org or call at (415) 409-9416, as we have some limited funding available for rentals.
Covid protocols: If you’re not vaccinated, you are required to wear a face covering for the duration of the class. If you’re fully vaccinated (meaning two weeks after the second dose of the Pfizer/Moderna vaccines or after the J&J vaccine) you are not required to wear a face covering. 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 Eliana Marcus-Tyler (email@example.com/415-409-9416) with any questions about this program.
