We’re hosting free bike classes across L.A. County. Whether you’re new to biking or just new to biking on city streets, these classes and group rides can help you become more comfortable with riding in an urban environment. Classes are broken up into the following categories:
Bicycling 101: an introductory presentation for employers, organizations, and groups who want a quick overview of bicycle basics and rules of the road. No actual bicycle riding. 🙂
Bike 1 – Back to Basics: this class covers bicycling basics and shows participants how to improve their bike control skills for travel or recreation. This is not a Learn to Ride class — participants should already know how to ride a bicycle.
Bike 2 – Rules of the Road: this class will help participants understand the rules of the road and transform their knowledge of how to ride a bike into practical skills to navigate city streets and use their bikes for everyday travel.
Bike 3 – Street Skills: this class will apply practical skills and critical thinking in a real-world setting, allowing riders to build on skills learned in the Bike 1 and Bike 2 classes.
Bike 4 – Flat Tire Clinic: learn and get hands-on experience on how to maintain your bike and fix a flat tire at a Metro Bike Hub.
