Confident City Cycling Class
This class offered by the Atlanta Bicycle Coalition is available on campus and at a discount to Georgia Tech students, faculty and staff.
This two-part bike clinic (part one on Tuesday, part two on Thursday) with instructors Neil Fleming and Johann Weber covers everything you need to know to learn to "drive" your bike safely and confidently around metro Atlanta. It includes bike handling skill drills, an instructor-led ride with feedback to reinforce what you learn in class, and free pizza.
Whether you are new to urban cycling and want to gain confidence riding in the street, a trail rider who would like to bike around the neighborhood with your kids, a bike commuter looking for tips on crash avoidance, or a bike enthusiast interested in leading your own rides, you'll be surprised by what you learn. Even the most seasoned bicyclists will have their eyes opened on the less intuitive aspects of Atlanta biking.
Expect to learn something new, have your good habits reinforced and those pesky bad habits disappear, and emerge a safer, more confident cyclist from every angle. The $20 public fee includes a membership to the Atlanta Bicycle Coalition.
