classes

Has it been a long time since you've been on a bike or are you simply looking for a refresher? Come learn the basics of bicycling at our Intro to Bicycling Workshops, hosted by the Silicon Valley Bicycle Coalition (Peninsula classes) and the San Francisco Bicycle Coalition (San Francisco classes).

Each course is a one-hour presentation covering many of the basics: the rules of the road, route planning, and, especially for Bay Area Bike Share riders, Bike Share 101. Classes marked with an asterisk (*) will end with an optional guided ride on Bay Area Bike Share.
