Street Skills Class


Our Street Skills Class is a free evening presentation and discussion for adults and mature teens who want to better understand the rules of the road, as well as their rights and responsibilities on the road. Topics covered include how to avoid common road hazards, basic traffic principles, where to ride on the road, how to safely change lanes, how to utilize bike infrastructure, and more. Street Skills is a required class in our Earn A Bike program.

Street Skills Classes have something to offer cyclists of all abilities. If you’re interested in taking to the streets, but want to do so with a better understanding of where you belong on the road and how to conduct yourself when you’re on it, our Street Skills Class is for you.


Street Skills Classes are open to adults and mature teens who are at least 14 years old.


If you are you comfortable balancing and pedaling but aren’t quite ready for open streets, or if you still need help starting, stopping, and riding with control, consider a free Bicycling Basics class, which covers these essential cycling skills.

NEXT STEP: Street skills ride

Once you attend a Street Skills Class, put what you’ve learned into practice on a Street Skills Ride. Experienced cycling instructors will guide you on a short ride on city streets and greenways to get you feeling comfortable riding in the City.


After that, put in some practice on you’re own and you’ll be ready to join us on one of our many organized rides throughout the year!
