Description

The first Ride Like a Girl workshop of the year brings you top tips for commuting by bike. Beginners are welcome.

*Please note that we have updated the meeting location to Bicycle Coffee shop, 364 2nd St in Jack London Square.

March 11 – The first workshop focuses on commuting basics, just enough chatting to get the fundamentals and rules of the road etched in our brains; and a 5-mile skill-building confidence-boosting ride to test out some of the basic skills.

  • 10am – 1pm @Bicycle Coffee (364 2nd St, Oakland 94607) in Jack London Square. Come by 9:30am and get a quick visual safety check by our fabulous League Certified Instructor, Kelly.
  • First hour of workshop will be a discussion and interactive Q&A ranging from bike equipment and accessory essentials, as well as a high level overview of rules of the road.
  • At around 11, we’ll head outside, try out a few riding skills and visit bike storage options around transit and on the street. We'll even visit a bikeshare pod.

Walk Oakland Bike Oakland, with support from Bike East Bay, presents our third year of RiDE LiKE A GiRL (RLAG), a bicycling skills workshop designed for every woman who wants to ride. Our goal is getting more women comfortable and confident on their bicycles, and feeling more connected with a community of women who want to bike! Our workshops are open to all women, trans and femme folks who want to join. For more information about the RLAG, and our other 2018 workshops on Bike Camping, and Finding the Perfect Bike, visit wobo.org/ride-like-a-girl-2018/.
