Registration deadline: Thursday, November 22nd


Sometimes we can’t row! Bicycling is a great way to get around town; it’s healthy and fun. This class is an introduction to the principles of riding safely on roads shared with motor vehicles. Are you: 

  • Able to ride a bike, but find cycling on the road more scary than fun?

  • Hoping to gain knowledge and confidence on the bike?

  • Wanting to crosstrain by cycling outdoors, instead of indoors?

  • Hoping to begin biking to work, school, appointments, ZLAC, etc.?

  • An experienced cyclist, but no one ever taught you the laws?

  • Just guessing at the rules of the road?

If so, then this course is for you!



To participate in the on-bike sections of this course you MUST:

  • Wear a helmet.

  • Bring an appropriate bicycle in sound, working condition, ready to be ridden, air in the tires.

  • Be able to ride said bicycle reasonably well, i.e. being able to start, stop, turn, ride in a straight line, and look over your shoulder.


Minimum age 13. All must sign waiver, or if aged 13-17 have it signed by parent/guardian. In case of inclement weather, we will reschedule. Bring water, a snack if needed, and appropriate outdoor clothes, preferably in bright colors. Wear pants or tights that are skinny at the ankle, or you can bring a clip, velcro strip, or long socks to secure loose pants.
