Are you someone Have a friend who could use a confidence boost on his/her bike? Give them a gift, a spot in our Riding with Confidence class.
Riding with Confidenceis ideal for people who are new to cycling, who are just getting back on bike after years away or who are perhaps confounded by the gears or not sure where on the road to ride. Let us help you them gain the skills to ride safely and confidently.
In three sessions, both in-classroom and on-bike, this easy-going class teaches:
- basic bike handling skills and maneuvers.
- how to shift and brake smoothly and effectively.
- how to share the road with other users.
You Your friend will need a bike in working order and a helmet. The course is designed for those who already know how to ride a bike. (More to come on adult learn-to-ride lessons!) Check the classes schedule for the April 14 session to register.
On the other hand, if you’ve gathered the confidence to train for big events this summer through the Cascade Training Series, you may still benefit from a Group Riding Skills clinic and a special session of our Fix a Flat class. Both are scheduled on Saturday, April 24 for the member price of $10. Come to classes on Saturday and ride the CTS on Sunday. In the first session, from 10 a.m. to noon you will learn, using your own bike, how to fix a flat tire and still make it back to the ride.
The second session from 12:30 to 3 p.m. focuses on Ride SMART rules and how to negotiate stop lights, turns and traffic when riding in group situations. The one hour presentation will be followed by an on-bike skills building clinic.
