Citibike Street Skills Class

Citi Bike Unlocked

A short presentation covering bike share basics and street riding tips. Every participant will receive a free Citi Bike day pass, worth $12+tax!


Thinking of joining or recently joined Citi Bike? This quick presentation & discussion touches on many of the topics addressed in our Street Skills 301: Rules of the Road class (rules of the road, 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), but the focus is on how to navigate the Citi Bike system and get the most out of those now-ubiquitous blue bikes. Every participant will receive a free 24-hour Citi Bike pass, worth $12+tax! Questions?

Upcoming Classes


Citi Bike Unlocked classes have something to offer cyclists of all abilities. If you’re interested in taking advantage of New York City’s bike share program, 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 Citi Bike Unlocked Class is for you.


Citi Bike Unlocked classes are open to adults and mature teens who are at least 14 years old, but note that you must be at least 16 years old to use Citi Bike.


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 class

After you attend a Citi Bike Unlocked class, dig deeper with a Street Skills 301: Rules of the Road, where you’ll learn even more about the rules of the road, and your rights and responsibilities when you’re riding on it.
