Those on-bike sessions in handling my bike and riding busy streets were empowering. I learned that I’m not an obstacle to traffic on my bike. I AM traffic!
The course was excellent in that it afﬁrmed things I already knew, clarified things I was unsure about, and clearly explained my rights and responsibilities as a cyclist. As a person who has mobility challenges, getting out every nice day to ride is simply one of the best things I’ve ever done for myself.
“I’ve been commuting by bike to work… for 11 or 12 years. I consider myself an experienced cyclist. I thought I knew everything I really needed to know until I took a CyclingSavvy class and discovered a whole new approach to to riding in traffic.”
Cycling Savvy showed me how to read traffic patterns, how to ride confidently and let other road users clearly know my intentions, and how to gracefully integrate myself as part of the flow of traffic. What a difference!
I was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease at the beginning of 2010. I have learned that active bicycling has been proven to reduce some symptoms. With the new skills that I’ve learned through the Cycling Savvy experience, I will be a safe rider for a very long time.
I can say without hesitation that I would never have considered putting in the miles I did without the knowledge, skills, and confidence I learned from CyclingSavvy.
It will change the way you think about bike riding and open up new possibilities for you and your bike. The name of the course, CyclingSavvy, is very appropriate as I can attest that I got a lot of savvy out of it.
The class included a lot of drills like turning, shoulder checks, quick stops, etc. I feel a lot more confident about my bike-handling skills after the class. The most valuable, though, was regaining confidence in my bike. I love my bike.
