Event description

Description

MoGo's Confident City Cycling is a two-hour class led by a certified instructor of the League of American Bicyclists. Confident City Cycling is open to anyone with experience on a bike, but may not feel comfortable riding in an urban environment. In this class, we’ll review proper signals, discuss where you should ride on the road, positioning at intersections, how to avoid hazards in the road, and take a short group ride!

MoGo Street Skills Classes are made possible through the generous support of General Motors.

FAQs

Is there a minimum age requirement for Confident City Cycling?

Yes. In order to ride a MoGo bike, you must be 16 years or older. You will also have to sign a user agreement upon arrival. Additionally, to ensure your safety, we ask that all participants be at least 5 feet tall. When the seat post is lowered to the minimum height, we want to make sure everyone can still touch the ground to balance.

Does MoGo provide bikes? Can I bring my own bike?

We provide MoGo bikes for all class participants, but you're also welcome to bring your own. All we ask is that your bike is in proper working condition as we won't be doing any maintenance work during class. Also, please let us know beforehand if you are bringing your own bicycle so we know how many MoGo bikes to bring. Send an email to Rory Lincoln at rory@mogodetroit.org.


Does MoGo provide helmets?

Yes, we do! Please feel free to bring your own, but everyone who registers for the class and needs a helmet will receive one.

Do I need to have a MoGo pass in order to participate?

No, you don't. We want to spread bike education to everyone whether you are a MoGo user or not. Maybe you'll like the bikes so much that you'll want to sign up!

I signed up, but now I can't make it. What should I do?

Send an email to Rory Lincoln at rory@mogodetroit.org or you can edit your registration on the Eventbrite page. We want to make sure these classes are open to everyone who wants to/can attend. We'll offer your spot to someone on our waitlist.
