Bike Bakersfield is hosting a Smart Cycling Course where you will learn all about your bike, riding in traffic, riding outside of traffic, signaling, turns, intersections, chains, cranks, cassettes, helmets, gear… the list goes on! We want you to ride safely, predictably and this course will teach you how! Plus we’re going to have a great time while we do it.
Certified cycling instructors will lead the class, covering where to ride and how to manage traffic safely. The class information and structure is a condensed version of the League of American Bicyclists Smart Cycling class.
We will be riding on the streets downtown practicing the skills discussed after the safety presentation. You will need a helmet and a working bike for the class. If you need either of these, please come to Bike Bakersfield and we will get you fixed up!
Instead of paying for the course, participants are recommended to become a member of Bike Bakersfield. In addition to receiving the membership benefits, members will be allowed to take their smart cycling quick guides home to keep as a reference.
The class is free for Bike Bakersfield Members.
