Event description

Description

All of us have somewhere to be despite the winter weather. Why not MoGo?

MoGo's Winter Street Skills class combines some of the basic safe cycling principles from our Summer Street Skills classes with tips and tricks unique to Michigan winters. This two-hour class will teach you how to handle the snow, slush, and freezing temperatures that make biking a little more challenging in the winter.

For the first hour of the class, we'll take learn about some of the hazards of winter biking and how they can be avoided. In the second hour, we'll practice some of our new skills in a group ride through the neighborhood.

MoGo Street Skills Classes are led by certified instructors of the League of American Bicyclists.


FAQs


Is this class for beginners?

For those who have never ridden a bicycle before, you are welcome to participate in the indoor portion of our class. However, we will not be doing beginner riding instruction so you will not be able to participate in the group ride. If you only want to participate in the indoor portion, there is no need to register. Just send an email to Rory Lincoln at rory@mogodetroit.org.


Is there a minimum age requirement to participate in the Winter Street Skills class?

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.


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?

Please send an email to passes@mogodetroit.org or edit your registration through the Eventbrite page. We want to make sure these classes are open to everyone who wants to/can attend. If you're unavailable, we'll offer your spot to someone on our waitlist.
