Confident City Cycling


We can all agree that in Santa Barbara, there
are only a handful of days where you might think twice about biking. But there could be a variety of reasons you
CHOOSE not to ride. Maybe your bike is uncomfortable, perhaps
you wouldn’t know what to do if you had a flat tire or other mechanical issues with
the brakes or shifting. OR maybe you just don’t feel confident sharing
the road with motor vehicles. SBBIKE’s Confident City Cycling course will
teach you the skills and give you the confidence to bike to work, to school, on errands, or
just for fun. We will help you understand what kind of bike
is right for you and your riding style, teach you some basic maintenance, and how to fix
a flat. You’ll learn about your rights and responsibilities
on the road, so you can ride safely and confidently, We will go outside, practice emergency maneuvers
and then take a spin around town, to put it all together. Confident City Cycling is a two-day course
offered by SBBIKE throughout the year. The next session is: Friday, August 24 from 6:30-8:00pm and Saturday,
August 25 from 9:00am to 1:00pm. Check out SBBIKE.org for more info.
