No matter what your level of biking skills, we've got classes to take you to the next level!
Are you ready to be part of Atlanta’s bicycling craze? The city’s got more and more folks out there riding bikes for fitness, commuting to work and school, and riding with friends. Join them by learning how to ride a bike.
This two part class series is for true beginners – adults who have never been on a bicycle or those who may have tried riding a bike a few times, but are not comfortable balancing, starting and stopping, shifting gears, and scanning the environment while pedaling. After two 2-hour classes, you will get all those skills and leave empowered to join the thousands of other cyclists enjoying and negotiating Atlanta.
We have a limited number of bikes for true beginners and thus require the RSVP. Please bring a helmet, water, and sunscreen. The first 30 minutes is in a classroom and the remaining 90 minutes will be outside at a park near the ABC office. Please only RSVP if you're able to attend both class dates.
