Bicycle Classes

Urban Cycling Workshop January 19 & 21

This next League of American Bicyclists class is tailored for transportation professionals, and scheduled for January in San Clemente. This class is open all riders – beginner through experienced club cyclists. We especially invite city  traffic and planning professionals, anyone who wants to find out what real bicycling is all about.

During this 9 hour course we’ll separate bicycle safety fact from fiction, teach real, proven, and effective behaviors to make cycling easier and less stressful. Basic mechanics and bike fit are covered, too.

Friday evening’s 3 hour lecture is followed by morning on-bike skills and drills, all part of this confidence building class. At left, a student carves a turn on her commuting bike that would make any bike racer proud. In addition to learning people tell us this class is FUN!

$35 includes materials, insurance, a written exam and (usually) a diploma “suitable for framing.” Contact Pete van Nuys, petevannuys@cox.net, 949 492 5737.
