Confident City Cycling Workshop: Free to neighborhood residents

 FREE

In celebration of National Bike Month, ABC is offering a series of classes in neighborhoods, free to neighborhood residents! The first class is scheduled for Saturday, May 19, from 10am-3pm at The Frazer Center for residents of Lake Claire, Candler Park, Kirkwood, and Edgewood. 

Many of us would love to bike for fun, fitness, or to get places, but aren't sure how to do so safely. This concise and comprehensive class covers everything you need to know about biking safely and confidently around metro Atlanta. It includes bike handling skill drills and an instructor-led ride with feedback to reinforce what you learn in class.

Whether you are new to urban cycling and want to gain confidence riding in the street, a trail rider who would like to bike around the neighborhood with your kids, a bike commuter looking for tips on crash avoidance, or a bike enthusiastic interested in leading your own rides, this class has something for everyone.

Expect to learn something new, have your good habits reinforced and those bad habits corrected. Even seasoned bicyclists will have their eyes opened on the less intuitive aspects of Atlanta biking. You will emerge a safer, more confident cyclist.

Price: Free to residents of our host, Lake Claire, and the surrounding neighborhoods of Candler Park, Kirkwood, and Edgewood!  

In addition, any cyclist in need (including college students) will receive a free bike helmet, light set, and neon safety vest.
