Empower Yourself to Ride Anywhere!

If you want to increase your confidence to bike anywhere you want — trail or road, rural or urban, for travel or recreation, CyclingSavvy can help! The full CyclingSavvy Course INCLUDES Truth & Techniques (classroom session), Train Your Bike (bike handling) session, and our signature on-road experience, the Tour of Portland.

Truth & Techniques: Friday September 27, 6:00 – 9:00 PM, at Continuum for Creativity, Westbrook Commons, Westbrook (next door to Westbrook House of Pizza on Main Street near the bridge)

Train Your Bike: Sunday September 29, 9:00 AM – Noon, at Shaw’s Mill Creek Plaza, South Portland

Tour of Portland: Sunday September 29, Noon – 4:30 PM, from Shaw’s Mill Creek Plaza, South Portland

The Tour of Portland is an experiential tour of our city’s roads. The course includes some of the most intimidating road features (intersections, interchanges, merges, etc.) a cyclist might find in his/her travels. The students travel as a group, stopping to survey and discuss each exercise location. After observing the feature, discussing the traffic dynamics and the best strategy for safe and easy passage, the students ride through individually and regroup at a nearby location.

Train Your Bike (bike handling) and Truth & Techniques (classroom session) are included in this 3-part workshop. Completion of these two sessions is required before taking the tour session.

The ticket below is for the full three-part class, including the Tour of Portland session. If you can’t make all 3 sessions, you can still purchase the full ticket now and take unused sessions at a later date (except you must take both the classroom and the bike handling before the tour). To purchase individual sessions, click Truths & Techniques or Train Your Bike.
