Whether you are getting on a bicycle for the first time or just need to brush up on your bike street-smarts, the Atlanta Bicycle Coalition has a free class for you.
During the month of October, the coalition will host free classes focusing on bicycle safety. The classes are part of Atlanta Bicycle Coalition’s continuing efforts to make biking safer and easier for local residents, according to a news release.
Atlanta launched a bike-share program earlier this year and was recognized as one of America’s “50 Best Bike Cities” for the first time this year.
True Beginner Class
For absolute beginners, ABC is hosting a two-part class on Oct. 15 and 29 from 1-3 p.m. Attendees will enjoy hands-on instruction to master bike skills, along with in-class instruction on safety, equipment and more. For more information about the two-day class, click here.
Urban Confidence Classes
For Atlantans who want to learn to more safely negotiate the city’s streets by bike, ABC is launching its monthly classes, “Urban Confidence,” in October. The first classes will take place from 6-7:30 p.m. on Oct. 20; and 2-3:30 p.m. on Oct. 22. Class participants will experience riding on a variety of types of streets via bike, from those with two-directional protected bike lanes to those with no separated lanes for bicyclists.
