What to Bring
For the classroom session, you do not need any equipment. For the on-bike sessions (Train Your Bike and the Tour), you will need the following:
For your on-bike sessions — the parking lot skills session and your on-road Tour — we suggest that you bring a multi-speed bicycle with street-worthy tires. Trikes and recumbent bicycles are welcome.
Please ensure your bike is in good working order. See the section below for more.
Our insurance company requires participants to wear helmets for all on-bike classes. Here is a short video on proper helmet fit. If you’re not sure how to adjust the straps, show up a few minutes early and your instructor will help you.
At Least One Water Bottle
If it’s hot out, bring two water bottles. If you don’t have a way to carry water, an instructor will carry it for you.
Snacks are welcome at each session. Especially beneficial are snacks high in protein. You’ll be expending lots of energy. Plan for this. Biking is no fun when your blood sugar crashes.
We do a lot of stopping and standing. Cleated shoes can get uncomfortable.
It’s better to have that warm jacket if you need it. Your instructor can carry it for you if you get warm during the tour.
