February Classes

We’re kicking off the new year with classes the first week of February.

We’ve resolved to help you make bicycling safe, comfortable, and fun again.  Whether you are riding for sport, transportation, or just plain fun, CyclingSavvy will give you tools and confidence to ride any street (or path) safely and comfortably.

Note that you can take each portion of the program separately, but in succession. For instance, in February you could take Truth & Techniques of Traffic Cycling and at the next scheduled workshop take the on-bike portions.

The students travel as a group, stopping to survey and discuss each exercise location. After observing the feature, discussing the traffic dynamics and the best strategy for safe and easy passage, the students ride through individually and regroup at a nearby location.
