Savvy Cycling Now features four virtual interactive and fast-paced off-bike sessions. The series is designed to set the framework for everything you need to know to make your riding easy, wherever you choose to ride.

Four One-Hour Zoom Sessions. Join From Anywhere.

Wednesday, September 9: Our rational and sensible traffic system, and how you on your bicycle are a natural part of it.

Wednesday, September 16: Bicycle safety: What really causes crashes, and how to avoid crashing.

Wednesday, September 23 & 30: Successful Bicycling, divided into two 1-hour sessions. The last two sessions on successful bicycling will show you:

⇒ Best practices for managing your space when you ride. You’ll discover the unexpected, transformative control you can have over your on-road safety.

⇒ How to recognize common traps that invite cyclists to do something risky.

⇒ How to ride a bicycle with ease through intimidating roadway configurations.

Sessions Limited to 25 Participants, With Two Instructors

This is designed so that all participants can participate as they desire. While one instructor delivers the presentation, the other will monitor the Chat window, ensure participant’s questions are answered, and diplomatically interject and interrupt the presenting instructor as needed.

Included in Your Registration

Within 48 hours, registrants will receive via email a video replay of that week’s session. So even if you can’t attend a session in the series, you’ll have the opportunity to get caught up before the next session.

The four Savvy Cycling Now sessions qualify you for the opportunity to bypass the classroom portion of CyclingSavvy workshops and proceed directly to the on-bike sessions.

Because of Covid, most on-bike sessions are suspended. Instructors are available, though, to help you safely experience savvy cycling. Contact us for the name of an instructor near you.

If you’re on Facebook, you’ll receive an invitation to join CyclingSavvy Graduates Chat. a safe and civil forum for sharing your questions, strategies, success stories, and challenges with your fellow Savvy Cyclists.

Ticket purchase includes video replay of all four sessions.

Videos are unlisted and for participant review only. Videos may not be altered, shared or reproduced. Purchase of a ticket implies understanding of and cooperation with these conditions.

To Participate

Buy your ticket below. Your instructor will email you the Zoom registration link.

CyclingSavvy is all about strategies.

As a participant, you’ll receive a full toolkit of strategies to make your bicycling easy, whether you’re practicing “driver,” “edge,” or “pedestrian” behavior. After the series, you’ll know best practices for keeping yourself safe when using any of these behaviors.

Doing is believing!

Because of the coronavirus pandemic, in-person courses are suspended in many locations. Check here for updates to on-bike sessions. In the meantime, contact us for the name of an instructor who can help you safely experience the epiphany of savvy cycling.

I’m a pretty experienced cyclist and a defensive driving instructor, and I got a lot of value and new information from the sessions I attended. My husband and 10-year-old daughter got a lot of it, too. Hope to hear more from Savvy Cycling, this was really great!

More Testimonials

The Cycling Savvy online course was a game changer for me and Savvy Cycling Now complemented it perfectly. I can’t recommend these courses enough for adult cyclists to increase safety and build confidence on their rides.

Thanks for the class. The graphics are outstanding and the videos clear.

Thanks for putting together Savvy Cycling Now. I really, really found it useful. I think someone commented at the end that these are the things most people don’t learn when they learn how to ride a bike as kids — my thought exactly! Another participant told me she was struck by the concept of platoons.  I was struck by the idea of communicating with drivers by looking over my shoulder. And that there are times when it is best to be in one tire track or another. I could go on and on.

I can tell the goal of the CyclingSavvy system is to keep everyone safe and to help individuals choose what is the right riding style for them after fully understanding the risks and benefits involved in each. You are presenting fabulous information in a clear, concise way with helpful visual resources.
I dream of ideal bikeways everywhere, but want to encourage riding before we get them.

Before CyclingSavvy, I had learned about bicycling from my peers — which is sort of like learning about sex from your high-school classmates.
