Summer 2019 dates for Smart Biking
The benefits of bicycling are numerous and we share them through our adult education classes like Smart Biking. Recognizing the many benefits of bicycling for recreation, transportation, and health, our programs promote bicycling to improve your health, help you experience your neighborhood in new ways, increase energy levels, and save money.
Join us the weekend of June 22nd and 23rd to increase your confidence riding a bike! Classes are free and will take place at the Bike Easy office (2100 Oretha Castle Haley). Smart Biking with Bike Easy is a two-session workshop that covers multiple bike safety topics. Register now!
You have the option of attending only session one but must complete session one before attending session two.
Upon completion of both sessions, a Smart Biking certificate will be awarded and participants will be eligible to take the League Certified Instructor Seminar as well as work as Bike Easy Bike Safety Volunteers.
