This is a ride, not a class. Before taking part in Bike Skills 202: Bike Path Ride, we suggest that participants practice all the techniques we teach in Bike Skills 201: Bike Handling Skills: starting, stopping, scanning, signaling, turning, changing gears, riding in a straight line, etc. Rides take place mostly on protected bike paths and greenways. There may be some on-street riding. The pace is relatively casual (10 mph or slower) and the rides are relatively short (less than 10 miles).
