Topics: Choosing a bike, adjusting the bike, maintenance, clothing/gear, rules of the road
- Session 2 – Smart Bike Handling (in-class & on-bike)*
Topics: handling basics, shifting gears, where to ride, infrastructure, crashes and hazards, night riding, rural riding
- Session 3 – Smart Road Riding (outside/on-bike)*
Topics: drive train maintenance, riding with a group, sharing paths and trails, inclement weather, night riding, rural riding, flat fixing
Participants may complete session 1 and 2 in any order but must complete both 1 & 2 before signing up for the final session 3.
