Street Skills 301: Rules of the Road 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 301: Rules of the Road 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 Bike Skills 201: Bike Handling Skills class, which covers these essential cycling skills.

NEXT STEP: Street Skills 302: On-Street Riding

Once you attend a Street Skills 301: Rules of the Road class, put what you’ve learned into practice on a Street Skills 302: On-Street Riding. 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!
