Boston: May 18-19 CyclingSavvy course

May 18 @ 6:30 pm - May 19 @ 4:00 pm EDT

A CyclingSavvy tour

The CyclingSavvy course greatly increases safety, confidence and enjoyment of cycling. The course includes classroom, parking-lot and on-street sessions. If you pay for all three, a discounted rate holds anywhere and anytime, though the on-street session must follow the others.

A testimonial from student Binbin Zhu, who took the course last year:

“It was such a wonderful experience to be at the cycling class. I came to understand that something “impossible” could become “possible” with skills learnt in a supportive community. Thank you all for helping me jumping out of my ‘comfort zone.'”

A course will be held on May 18 and 19 (Friday evening in Newton and Saturday) in Waltham). Secure bicycle parking and free car parking are available.
