Everyone’s heard the saying, "It’s like riding a bike - you never forget how."

The truth is that many of us learn how to physically ride a bike, but there's a lot more to bicycle safely that we never learn, and things that without practice we would forget (like the emergency quick turn - a vital crash avoidance technique). That's why we offer two kinds of bike safety classes through our partnership with Civil Bikes and with support from the Governor's Office of Highway Safety. Join us for safer, more confident cycling!

True Beginners 

Plenty of adults and teens are learning to ride for the very first time - you're not alone! This introductory course will get you rolling on two wheels. Bikes and helmets included. $25 ($20 for ABC members)

Confident City Cycling 

If you already know know how to ride a bike, but want to gain skills, knowledge, and confidence, this is the class for you. We'll cover rules of the road, skills for avoiding crashes, and more. Great refresher, confidence builder, or way to get a friend or family member into biking. Free.
