Hi — I am CyclingSavvy instructor John Allen. I live in eastern Massachusetts and teach here, also online and traveling to work with other instructors. I have experience riding a bicycle in the Boston urban area, where I have lived since 1971. I have also ridden extensively in other cities all around the USA and in Canada.
I ride for transportation in everyday clothes. I also ride in spandex with a recreational bicycle club and on overnight tours. I am the author of the booklet Bicycling Street Smarts. As technical writer and editor at sheldonbrown.com, I write about bicycle customization and maintenance.
Please feel free to check out any of the links above, or get in touch with me about a course, or ask any bicycling question which you may have. I especially can help with questions about gearing including internal-gear hubs, parts compatibility and bicycle setup. I teach so that other people can experience the freedom which I know as a cyclist. I can show you how to do this in safety and with confidence, through the Bicycling Street Smarts booklet or in a CyclingSavvy course.
Four interactive sessions set the stage for succcessful bicycling, anywhere you choose to ride. Join from your computer. This virtual event is listed in the Eastern USA time zone. Make sure to adjust for your time zone.
