Welcome to our calendar of FREE bike classes. DUE TO THE CORONAVIRUS, CLASSES ARE HAPPENING ONLINE.
Whether you’re a True Beginner, seeking greater confidence riding on city streets, hoping to increase your transportation options by getting around on Atlanta’s bike share bikes, or want help navigating a commute on your own two wheels, we’ve got a class for you. Each class is led or facilitated by our Education Coordinator Stephen Spring or another League Cycling Instructor (LCI), certified by the League of American Bicyclists.
You can RSVP for any class below or click the buttons above to view more details and RSVP for a particular class type. Attendance at any class conducted by the Atlanta Bicycle Coalition indicates your agreement to our liability waiver.
Please note: True Beginners classes are offered as a 6-lesson course. You can join in any time in the sequence.

Whether you are riding our city streets out of necessity to get to work, to the pharmacy, to the grocery store, or to an appointment or you are wanting to just get out and move your body, the Atlanta Bicycle Coalition is here for you.
In this lesson, you will:
- know where to get a bike or your bike repaired
- learn how to do an ABC-Q check to make sure you're bike is ready to go
- fit your helmet
- plan a route to your place of work
- learn signaling and other timely communication strategies
- know how to safely take the lane
- share your strategies for safely getting to, being at, and getting home from your place of work
We are committed to your safety as you negotiate the city streets for transportation, for essential services, and for recreation. We'll remind you of the CDC's Social Distancing and Prevention Guidelines that apply to people on bikes in each of the six lessons.
All interactive, virtual classes are 'live' on Thursdays between 5:30 and 6:15.
These free classes are provided with the support of the Georgia Governor's Office of Highway Safety.
