Event description

Description

This class is specifically for you if you are a woman who knows how to ride a bike and has access to a bike in good working condition (with at least three gears) but have been hesitant about riding. Maybe it's been awhile or you never really learned necessary bike skills like switching gears, hazard avoidance, and rules of the road in the first place. You're not alone. There are tons of folks who grew up riding bikes but never really made the switch to riding regularly as an adult. Now's your chance.

You will be taught in a supportive environment by a fellow woman who understands your challenges and concerns. Whether you want to ride for fun and fitness on park trails, ride with your kids to school in your neighborhood, commute via mass transit and bike into the City of Atlanta, or use bikeshare in various metro-Atlanta cities (Atlanta, Vinings, Roswell, Alpharetta, Suwanee, and Carollton) or when you travel, you will walk away with a solid foundation of basic bike skills and tips.

I am certified to teach the League of American Bicyclists' Smart Cycling curriculum. We go at a pace that meets your comfort level. The entire class takes place in a suburban park with only two brief times when we may share the park road with motor vehicles, so do not let concern about car traffic keep you from taking this class.

I offer this class once a month, for up to two participants. Bring your own bike in good working condition (with at least 3 gears), a helmet, and a bottle of water. Closed toe shoes are better (no flip flops). There is a restroom and water dispenser in the park. You will need to sign the League of American Bicyclists standard release form right before we start the class.

If interested, please visit my blog at TravelingAtTheSpeedofBike.com.

Note: I offer occasional free group rides to former students in the more-bike-friendly City of Atlanta -- either "6-Mile Intro to the Atlanta Beltline's Eastside Trail and Piedmont Park," or "10-Mile Best of Atlanta." You are welcome to join me if you take a private class first and feel up to it mileage-wise. FYI: It is significantly easier to ride a bike in the City of Atlanta than in suburbia. You may be very surprised.
