Ever since CyclingSavvy DFW launched in 2011, our goal has been to customize the workshop to different cities in the metroplex. The Dallas workshops have proven over and over again that cyclists of all types and ages can truly enjoy and benefit from this innovative material. So, it gives me great pleasure to announce to you that registration is NOW OPEN for…
This has been a long-time coming and we are really excited about bringing this outstanding bicycle workshop to the streets of Fort Worth. We hope this is the first of many opportunities in Fort Worth. We’ve put a lot of time and effort into planning a weekend that will be fun, innovative, and unique… but best of all, useful. You will cycle away excited, empowered, and ready to enjoy cycling anywhere in Fort Worth. But, don’t take our word for it… see what others are saying!
Come join us on Friday, April 19 and Saturday, April 20 for the entire CyclingSavvy workshop. Arlington Heights United Methodist Church on Camp Bowie Boulevard (map) will be hosting both the classroom and parking lot drill components of the workshop. Click here to register.
Like our Dallas workshops, we will be having a Friday evening classroom session called Truth & Techniques of Traffic Cycling. Through guided discussion with video and animation, this session familiarizes participants with bicycle-specific laws, traffic dynamics and problem-solving strategies. Videos, reference material, and animations demonstrate that bicycle drivers are equal road users, with the right and ability to control their space.
On Saturday morning, we’ll beef up our bike handling skills with Train Your Bike. This session is conducted in a parking lot. It consists of a set of progressive drills designed to increase cyclists’ control and comfort while handling a bike in various situations.
Then, on Saturday afternoon (after a quick lunch, of course!) we’ll work through a brand-new Tour of Fort Worth. This session is an experiential tour of area roads. The route includes some of the most intimidating road features (intersections, interchanges, merges, etc.) a cyclist might find in his or her travels. Travelling as a group, the participants stop to survey and discuss each exercise location. After observing the feature, discussing the traffic dynamics and the best strategy for safe and easy passage, each cyclists rides through individually and regroups at a nearby location. This session is designed to give you the confidence and skills to handle any urban situation.
