COVID-19 Precautions

NOTE: We take the threat of the COVID-19 virus seriously, and will cancel classes as required or we deem appropriate. These clinics are outdoors, and compatible with social distancing and recommended hygiene. If classes are canceled, we will either offer a refund or attendance at a future clinic.

 

If you are attending a class with us, please bring a mask or face covering with you as there may be times when physical distancing of at least 6 feet is not possible or practical.

Confidence in Traffic

Registration for each clinic ends 7 days prior to the clinic, to allow time for the student to complete the on-line education and testing. Class sizes are limited, so sign up early to guarantee a spot.

 

Pricing for this class is $50.00. On the registration page, once filled out, you will be taken to the payment page.

 

This clinic is meant to teach the concepts and skills of cooperative cycling - how to "drive" your bike in traffic the safest way possible. Learn the 5 Levels of Crash Prevention, hazard avoidance skills, and get some good information aout riding in general, basic bike maintenance, etc. You will also receive a Smart Cycling manual to keep.

 

This is not a course to learn to ride your bike - you need to be able to do that before attending this clinic.

 

The clinic has two parts, as follows:

 

1. Online instruction and testing which you can complete at your convenience. you must complete this portion with and 80% or higher overall score.

 

2. On the bike instruction, each session will last 3-4 hours, depending on how many students, general skill levels, etc. You will need to bring your bike in working order, a helmet (required), and any water/snacks you might need. Also, dress for the weather. Most of the session will take place in a parking lot, where we will learn and practice skills and techniques. We will then take a group ride on local streets where you can practice the skills and apply the knowledge you have just learned in real life situations. We will end with you filling out a feedback form and the instructor will fill our a road test score sheet (yes, a report card).
