Course Overview: Part 1 - Classroom Session
Tuesday 5:30pm - 8:30pm
UCI Student Center – Room: Newport Beach A on 4th Floor
The classroom lecture covers bicycle law, gear, basic mechanics, and more. This session is held on Thursday evening prior to the "on-bike" training on Saturday. Even if you have been riding bikes your whole life, you will learn something new. Day 1 will be held from 5:30pm to 8:00pm in the Student Center. No bike is required. Light refreshments will be provided.
Course Overview: Part 2 - On-Bike Session
Saturday 8:00am - 1:30pm
Parking Lot 1C
Prerequisite: Part 1 - Classroom Session
Part 2 covers bike handling skills in a closed parking lot, a bike ride allowing participants to practice their cycling skills in small groups under the watchful eyes of UCI's League of American Bicyclists-trained LCIs, and an optional online examination. The On-Bike session will be held from 8:00am – 1:30pm. Please bring your bike, helmet, water, and snacks. Meet promptly at Lot 1C to get checked in. Prior to this course, participants must take their bicycle to the UCI Bike Shop for a free maintenance check-up. Mechanical issues have caused delays to our class in the past.
At this time we are only able to accommodate UCI students, faculty, and staff and their immediate family members age 18 and over. More classes will be offered in the future. Please feel free to email email@example.com with any questions or comments. We look forward to seeing you in Smart Cycling!
