About Bike To Work Day (BTWD)

BTWD is a National Day to encourage and celebrate people riding their bikes to work, increasing forms of modality, reducing carbon footprints and increasing opportunities to complete cardio exercise in a day. This class will occur the Saturday prior to BTWD, where BikePGH will have free commuter café's set up to greet riders with coffee, comraderie and more on their way to work.

About Confident City Cycling

The class is designed for people who already know how to ride a bike, and are looking for special skills practice and instruction on how to operate their bikes safely on city streets.

Get ready to ride comfortably and confidently around town through participating in this skill-building and safety-learning course. Learn more about crash avoidance, lane positioning, and basic bicycle maintenance! Our Confident City Cycling class includes an on-bike skills session and a group road-ride.

During this class you will practice skills including: body bike separation, brake modulation, weight distribution, and quick hazard avoidance. After the on-bike skills session the class will go on a group road-ride to practice strategies for crossing big intersections, riding on fast roads, reading traffic patterns, and road conditions.

These mobile classes are structured to give participants education and experience navigating different traffic patterns, intersection layouts and types of bike infrastructure.

Free Healthy Ride bike rentals are available for participants ages 16+ to use during class instruction. If you’d like to use a Healthy Ride bike, you can request a rental on your class registration.

Confident City Cycling is a class intended for participants ages 15 and up. All participants or their guardians will need to sign this waiver in order to participate in the class. A copy of the waiver will also be made available at the beginning of the course.
