Savvy Cyclist Class
Savvy Cyclist is a free, one-day "introduction to cycling" program for adults and mature teens who want to improve their cycling skills. It provides essential knowledge and skills to know, adjust, repair, and ride your bike like an experienced pro. This class is ideal for new cyclists who want to learn the basics, those returning to cycling from a long hiatus, people who want to be more independent on their bike, and those who feel a little nervous while cycling in traffic.
If you do not know how to ride a bike (that is, start, stop, balance and steer without falling down), this is not the right class for you. Participants must know how to balance and control a bicycle.
- Adjusting your bike and helmet for a comfortable fit
- Performing a safety inspection on your bike to make sure everything is working properly
- Fixing a flat tire
- Using your gear system
- Locking your bike
- Bike handling skills
- Cycling safely and confidently in traffic
The class is mostly hands-on and bike-riding activities, though it includes some classroom learning. Participants will receive literature and accessories to ensure continued safe and enjoyable riding.
