Urban Confidence Ride: Atlanta Cycling Festival

ABC_BikeClasses_bubbles_UC_1.png

This is a special Atlanta Cycling Festival edition of our Urban Confidence class!

The Atlanta Bicycle Coalition staff will lead you on an informative and fun ride that will boost your city cycling confidence. In addition to experiencing some of the infrastructure that is making biking for transportation in Atlanta more accessible, you'll learn how to increase your awareness, communication and presence while navigating our city's streets.

We'll launch from Lean Draft House and head from West End to Downtown and back to Lean Draft House to celebrate a successful rush-hour ride.

What to expect

We will gather for a few quick drills then hit the city streets for a two-hour ride of eight to ten miles. Once rolling, we’ll

  • Take it slow, stay together, and practice our skills in a safe and supportive manner
  • Experience Atlanta’s existing bicycle facilities, like two-directional protected and/or single-directional bike lanes and sharrows, and
  • Learn to ride safely on streets without bike lanes by exercising our legal right to “take the lane”
How to prepare

Please bring a bicycle in good repair that fits you and a helmet. (We’ll provide access to Relay bike share if you do not have a bicycle available to you.) We strongly recommend you also bring

  • Water
  • Sneakers or other appropriate closed-toed shoes
  • Comfortable, appropriate clothing for being outside and active
  • A friend or three!

Please arrive promptly so all participants can benefit from the full time allotted for this instructional experience.

These free classes are provided with the support of the Georgia Governor's Office of Highway Safety.

RSVP below to join fellow Black, Indigenous and People of Color who identify on the Queer & Trans spectrums for a community bike ride at 10:00 am, Saturday, June 2.

Across the nation, Pedal.Pulse.Pride rides will be led by and centered for Queer Trans Intersex Black Indigenous People of Color (QTIBIPOC). Loved ones are encouraged to participate by standing in solidarity to support, sharing resources (including services and funding) and joining the ride! We especially encourage family -- chosen and blood -- to join us on the ride day.

Atlanta's will launch from Woodruff Park in Downtown. This will be an easy bike ride in commemoration of QTIBIPOC lives lost locally and at Pulse in Orlando (Rest in Power). We will also reclaim Pride by showing a thriving community!


Please share this! Invite friends. Pass it along on your social feeds, and include it in your newsletter.
