Learn to Ride - Virtual Q&A

As the world recovers from the pandemic, there remains a demand for educational programming related to cycling. While we needed to postpone offering our in-person Learn to Ride workshops, we took it as an opportunity to develop and produce a video version of the class, which teaches you how to ride a bicycle in six easy steps. We're excited to share that with you here! The video features the same material from our in-person workshops and a cast of Indego Champions.

We'll also be offering a few short, 30 - 40 minute Q&A sessions on the video throughout the season, where we'll be available to chat through Zoom and answer any questions you have about the content of the video or bicycling in general.

Virtual Urban Riding Basics Classes

Changing Gears: Community Conversations

Changing Gears aims to create more united biking communities by creating a safe space to share and hear ideas about current topics related to personal wellness, cycling in Philadelphia, COVID-19, and other general city cycling updates in an open format discussion. This event is a one-hour virtual hang with us through Zoom and Facebook Live. Come hang out and catch up with the team, we're excited to hear what you've been up to!

Skill Building Course

This class is perfect for anyone who's previously attended a Learn to Ride class or is able to pedal but could use more practice turning, signaling, scanning, and generally getting the bike to do what you want it to!

Participants will navigate a skill-building obstacle course, which is not only a fun challenge but also a great way to learn real-world skills to help them ride around the city confidently and safely.

Different courses teach different skills like avoiding hazards, scanning the area while riding straight, making tight turns, signaling, balance, and control.

There's no cost to sign-up and participants receive a free helmet!
