    "Stranger Things" than Biking

    School's out 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 afternoons from 3:00-4:15 p.m.  These engaging and visually entertaining classes are designed for families or 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

    City Cycling - Summertime

    To participate in the program, RSVP below, and you will receive a virtual Zoom meeting link for the June 23rd Pre-Ride. You will receive a meeting link for the Post-Ride before June 30th. Sign-ups are limited to the first 50. Here you can learn about other classes to join.

    Whether you are riding our city streets to get to work, the pharmacy, the grocery store, or an appointment, or you are wanting to get out, move your body, and enjoy the outdoors, the Atlanta Bicycle Coalition is here for you.  This month's 2-part City cycling class is open to all ages.

    In this class, you will:

    • learn how to do an ABC-Q check to make sure you're bike is ready to go
    • fit your helmet
    • plan a route 
    • learn communication strategies
    • know how to be predictable 
    • enhance critical safety skills - turning, scanning, and stopping 

    Know that our bike instructor for this class, Stephen Spring, has 20+ years of experience as an ELL-certified public school teacher.  Both the written and the taught curriculum will employ strategies to ensure our emerging bi- and multi-lingual participants can fully engage.

    Our Program:

    • June 23rd Pre-Ride - a virtual gathering where we build community, share skills, and share challenge rides for all skill levels
    • June 23 through June 29 - take up one or more skill- and confidence-building challenge rides alone or with old and new friends
    • June 30th Post-Ride - a virtual gathering where we 1) share our experiences through conversation, photos, and video and 2) celebrate your 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.
