Our friends at the Alexandria Bicycle and Pedestrian Advisory Committee (BPAC) are hosting two FREE Smart Cycling classes designed to help riders feel more safe and confident in various traffic conditions, terrain, and climates. Whether you are an experienced rider or just started, this class will provide useful skills and tips.
The Smart Cycling class consists of online instruction as well as on-bike instruction. Participants can choose from two options for the on-bike portion:
- Sign up for the class on Friday, 30 April, from 2-6 pm at Alexandria’s Ben Brenman Park by registering FOR FREE at bit.ly/SmartCyclingALX2021.
- Sign up for the class on Saturday, 1 May, from 9 am-1 pm at The Journey Church in Springfield by registering FOR FREE at bit.ly/SmartCyclingFFX2021.
These classes are for people who know how to ride a bike and would like to expand their skills. They are funded by a Northern Virginia Regional Commission/Virginia Highway Safety Office grant and are open to anyone who lives or works in northern Virginia. After completion of the course, students are required to participate in two volunteer activities promoting bicycling or walking.
For everyone’s health and safety, covid-19 precautions will be enforced during the on-bike portion of the class, including capping class capacity at 12 students, asking students to self-screen, requiring people to wear masks during the skills drills, and requiring people to maintain social distance.
Spaces are limited, so sign up today!
