Confident City Cycling

Many people are intimidated and discouraged by the way motorists dominate the roadway. Through education and practice, Confident City Cycling builds your personal confidence for riding a bicycle on city streets. 

  • Understand your rights and duties as a driver operating a bicycle safely and legally on public roadways. 
  • Develop the ability to identify unsafe traffic situations and make decisions that can prevent crashes and collisions.  
  • Learn how to perform pre-ride bike safety check and basic roadside repairs, such as fixing a flat tire and minor mechanical adjustments.

The course includes a student manual, review of state and local laws, on-bike skill development, and additional tools to help you become a more confident and smart cyclist.
