Tour of the City (3.5 hours):
This session is an experiential tour of your 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.
This session is only available with the full course. Bike-handling exceptions can be made for trike drivers.
This session is designed to give you the confidence and skills to handle any situation you might encounter.
The object of the course is not to turn people into road warriors, but to give them access to the entire transportation grid. In many cases, it is only an intimidating intersection or short stretch of busy road which hinders a cyclist’s preferred route. This course is designed to show students simple strategies to eliminate obstacles and ride with ease and confidence in places they might never have thought possible.
