This special edition of Bike Pittsburgh's Confident City Cycling is intended for women and trans identified people who know how to ride a bike, and are looking for instruction on how to operate it safely on city streets.
Come learn more about crash avoidance, lane positioning, and bicycle maintenance! Our Confident City Cycling class includes an on-bike skills session and a group road-ride.
This class will give you the confidence to commute to Downtown safely.
During this class you will practice skills including: body bike separation, brake modulation, weight distribution, and quick hazard avoidance. After the on-bike skills session the class will go on a group road-ride to practice strategies for crossing big intersections, riding on fast roads, reading traffic patterns, and road conditions.
