Free bicycling course from certified instructor

Are you curious about using your bike to get around the city, but aren’t sure where to start?  If you’re interested but intimidated by urban bicycling, you can come to the downtown library for a series of free classes that can help you get started!  Taught by a certified instructor from the League of American Bicyclists, these one-hour classes focus on the absolute essentials of riding your bike in the city.  Each class has a different topic, so you can pick and choose which topics are of use to you.

Get the skills you need to go out and ride

A recent national study showed that 60% of people are “interested but concerned” cyclists – that is, they would like to use their bicycle more to get around, but worry about their safety.  The goal of these classes, held on weeknights from 7-8 PM on the first floor of the Central Library, is to give those “interested but concerned” cyclists the basic knowledge and confidence they need to get out there and try using their bicycle to get around the city in a way that works best for them – whether that be riding to work every day, or just riding a couple blocks down the street to visit a friend or grab some coffee.
