    "Stranger Things" than Biking

    Spring is right around the corner and kids are getting more restless than ever.  Many of them are venturing further down the street or out and about the neighborhood - on bikes!!

    Our 45-minute virtual classes will run on select Tuesday afternoon from 3:00-4:15 p.m. during the months of March and April.  These engaging and visually entertaining classes are designed for adults to pick up skills and resources to transfer to children.  

    You will learn:

    • Basic rules of the road/sidewalk
    • How to do a quick ABC (air, brakes, chain) safety check on a bike
    • Ways to assess a street for ride-ability
    • What to wear when biking and how to fit a helmet
    • How following the CDC guidelines help keep children safe while biking

    • learn communication strategies

    We are happy to partner with REI for this April virtual City Cycling series. REI has been a strong partner with the Atlanta Bicycle Coalition for several years. Last year, REI awarded the Atlanta Bicycle Coalition a grant to support our Bike Family Program

    REI provides outdoor enthusiasts in the Atlanta area with top-brand gear & clothes for camping, climbing, cycling, fitness, hiking and more. All five local stores have a full bike shop, offering a full range of professional bike shop services to help keep you biking the streets and trails year-round.

    Our Program:

    • April 20th Pre-Ride - a virtual gathering where we build community, share skills, and share challenge rides for all skill levels
    • April 21st through April 26th - take up one or more skill- and confidence-building challenge rides alone or with old and new friends
    • April 27th Post-Ride - a virtual gathering where we 1) share our experiences through conversation, photos, and video and 2) celebrate our accomplishment and talk about what's next.

    We are committed to your safety as you negotiate the city streets for transportation, essential services, and recreation. We'll remind you of the CDC's Social Distancing and Prevention Guidelines that apply to people on bikes.

     

    This free, two-part class is provided with the support of the Georgia Governor's Office of Highway Safety.

    Ticket Diversion Class

    Atlanta Bicycle Coalition’s mission is to transform Atlanta into a more livable, accessible city by making biking equitable, safe, and appealing.

    To help promote understanding and awareness of the proper use of bicycle routes, bicycle lanes, multi-use trails, and learn how vehicles share public space within the City of Atlanta, the City Solicitor’s Office, in collaboration with the Atlanta Bicycle Coalition, developed a Diversion Program to provide education on bicycle safety and traffic laws for both drivers and bicyclists.

    The two-hour class will be held virtually until further notice. Successful completion of the two-hour class earns participants a certificate that serves as the documentation needed to absolve the ticket fine.  In order to enroll, please RSVP.  You will receive a Zoom link to access the class.
