This class will develop the confidence and competence of both the beginner bicyclist and avid rider. Learn about choosing a bicycle, essential equipment, and how to ride safely and comfortably in various traffic scenarios. You will also learn that bicycling doesn’t require lots of technical gear, intense physical training, or a “hardcore” mentality. Safe cycling is something anyone can do!
