Bike Skills 101: Hands-on Course

Bike Skills 101:

Hands-on Course

Northwest Cycling Club in conjunction with League of American Bicyclists is offering a class designed to teach adult cyclists how to use a bicycle with confidence and competence for pleasure, utility, and sport under various highway, climate, terrain, and traffic conditions.

PLEASE NOTE: There is a pre-requisite for this hands-on course – you must complete the free online ‘classroom’ portion before attending. Please see the information below.

  • Online course is available at www.bikeed.org.
  • Once you get to the site you will need to register and complete the four chapters as this will prepare you for the ‘on-the-bike’ portion of the course. 
  • Deadline for completing the online course is Friday, September 13th at 11:59 pm.
  • Failure to complete the online course will prevent you from being able to complete the hands-on course.

 

The class is organized into three levels:
   1. The Basics
        a. The Bicycle
        b. Maintenance
        c. Clothing and Equipment
        d. Bicycle Handling
   2. Bicycling in Traffic

   3. Enjoying the Ride

        b. Ride Etiquette
        c. Helping Motorists Share the Road

Bring your bike, helmet, water bottle(s) and wear comfortable riding clothes. At the end of the skills class, we will take to the road and put into practice the skills learned. The on-the-bike course is approximately 9 miles.
