Spring is around the corner and so are our Better Bike Share Partnership free bicycle education classes and rides, hosted by Indego. This year we’re offering in-person Urban Riding Basic Classes, Learn to Ride Classes, and Featured Group Rides beginning in April and ending in October. We will be highlighting the Indego expansion locations, local green spaces, and communities that have deep roots in Philly. Keep reading to learn more about each type of class or ride and how you can participate!
Urban Riding Basics (URB)
This is a great class if you are looking to learn tips and tricks about riding in city environments. This 60-minute class requires no bicycle and is a great way to learn about the rules of the road, hand signaling, and bicycle etiquette. All of the URB classes are discussion-based and taught by our experienced education team members from the Bicycle Coalition of Greater Philadelphia.
Learn to Ride (LTR)
This class is great for individuals who want to learn how to ride a bicycle or need to brush up on their cycling fundamentals. This is a two-hour, hands-on class that will give you the building blocks and techniques to successfully ride a bicycle. These classes are taught in an enclosed space to ensure that riders are completely separated from cars and remain safe. Registrants will each be provided with a free helmet and water bottle so folks can be safe and hydrated during the class.
Indego Bicycle Rides
Featured Group Rides
Our group rides this year will be a collaboration with partners and community organizations from the Philadelphia region. These slow-paced, 2-3 mile rides will feature local communities, green spaces, and new Indego Bike Share stations. This is a great way to meet other riders and find new places to ride. You will get a chance to see different types of bicycle infrastructure, practice riding in a city environment, and become part of the Indego community.
