Boston: Train Your Bike

May 19 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm EDT

This event has been postponed due to forecast of rain.

This session covers bicycle handling skills in a closed course with progressive drills designed to increase your control and comfort handling your bike. This session will be held in a large, outdoor parking lot at Hobbs Brook Office Park in Waltham. You may drive in and park your car in the parking lot.

The cost of this session is $45 but you may also sign up for the other two sessions of the CyclingSavvy course (see listing), and get a discounted rate of $95 for all three. You may take the sessions anytime, anywhere, except that the on-street session must follow the others.

Register here. (The page is for the complete three-session course. If you want to take this individual session, click on “go here” in the paragraph at the top of the page).

The Train Your Bike includes a quick bicycle checkover, but there’s more time for a free checkover and adjustments on Sunday mornings at the Bike Lab in Waltham. Information is here.
