True Beginners Part 2

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, as a means to get errands done, or taking in the Beltline and other park spaces on two wheels?  Come learn how to ride a bike.
This class 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.
