Give your city cycling confidence a boost with this instructional group ride. This in-person class is designed in conjunction with the Georgia Bike/Walk Summit.
What to expect
We will gather for a few quick drills then hit the city streets for a 45-minute ride of three to four gentle miles. Once rolling, we’ll
- Take it slow, stay together, and practice our skills in a safe and supportive manner
- Experience Atlanta’s existing bicycle facilities, like two-directional protected and/or single-directional bike lanes and sharrows, and
- Learn to ride safely on streets without bike lanes by exercising our legal right to “take the lane”
- Experience how one can commute combining MARTA and bicycling. Thanks to an in-kind donation from MARTA, all participants will receive a Breeze card loaded with two trips.
How to prepare
Please bring a bicycle in good repair that fits you and a helmet. E-bikeshare will be on hand for a free one-time use and Relay Bike Share is nearby for rent if you do not have a bicycle available to you. We strongly recommend you also bring
- Water and sunscreen
- Sneakers or other appropriate closed-toed shoes
- Comfortable, appropriate clothing for being outside and active
- A friend or three!
Please arrive promptly so all participants can benefit from the full time allotted for this instructional experience.
