Give your city cycling confidence a boost with this instructional group ride. This in-person class is designed in conjunction with the Community Farmers Market.
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, then practice connecting bike trips to MARTA! 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.”
How to prepare
Please bring a helmet and ensure that your tires are inflated to the recommended psi. We strongly recommend that you also bring:
- Water and sunscreen
- Backpack, panniers, or container to carry groceries. Other bike hardware container options would be a front basket, a rear rack with a milk crate, etc. We highly recommend considering your carrying capacity before writing your grocery list.
- 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.
