Urban Riding Basics Classes

Do you want to try Indego, but need to build a little more confidence in your city-biking skills? Are you interested in biking during the spring months, but could use some tips on doing it safely?

This FREE 90-minute classroom based course covers how to use Indego the rules of the road, riding safely in traffic, making sure your helmet fits, planning your route, and more!

No bike needed! At the end of the class, you'll have a chance to test ride an Indego bike (helmet provided).

This class is relevant to bicyclists of all skill levels but is most important for beginners.

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!
