Come and learn everything from lane positioning to gear ratios. Not sure how to ride through an intersection? Curious about riding two abreast? Our nationally certified instructors are walking bicycle-encyclopedias and can answer any question you might have. We guarantee you’ll come away having benefited whether you are an expert or a novice bicyclist. This two-hour course uses slide illustrations, street diagrams, and video clips to communicate a general overview of cycling in Sonoma County. A bicycle is not required for Smart Cycling A, but bringing your helmet is recommended so we can make sure your helmet is fitted correctly. Smart Cycling B is an on-bike class for people who have already completed Smart Cycling A and want to improve their riding skills. A bicycle in good mechanical condition and a properly fitted helmet are required for Smart Cycling B.
Smart Cycling Fees: $20 for General Public and only $10 for Coalition members.

Classes are held at the Coalition office in downtown Santa Rosa at the times shown.
