Northern New England: June 15-16 CyclingSavvy course

June 15 @ 6:00 pm - June 16 @ 4:00 pm EDT

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 in Boston 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 June 15 and 16 (Friday evening classroom session in downtown Portland, outdoor sessions Saturday in South Portland).
