BICYCLE SAFETY AND EDUCATION TRAINING

Montgomery County and Capital Bikeshare want you to be prepared to ride safely.  Bicycle safety training for bikeshare users is being sponsored by the County, with classes offered by the Washington Area Bicycle Association (WABA) and Montgomery College at the Rockville Campus.  Classes are offered at very low cost to the general public (due to County sponsorship), and are free to participants in the County's grant-funded low income bikeshare program.

 

WASHINGTON AREA BICYCLIST  ASSOCIATION

For riders looking to comfortably and confidently share the road with cars, WABA's City Cycling classes provide useful skills and techniques to tackle whatever the streets dish out.  At each class, students have the option of joining the Intro to City Cycling group or the Confident City Cycling group. Each group learns different bike-handling skills and goes on a unique ride on nearby streets. Students are invited to take the class twice to get the full City Cycling experience!

Costs: The fee is $10; free to MCLiberty program participants.  Advance registration is encouraged.  A limited number of walk-up registrants will be accommodated on a first-come, first-served basis.

 

MONTGOMERY COLLEGE

Montgomery College's bicycle education and safety course includes bicycle riding fundamentals, pedestrian and motorist traffic navigation strategies, bikeshare system tutorial, and map reading and routing instruction.  Have fun while you learn how to identify lane positions, maintain appropriate balance, and communicate in traffic.

Costs: The 4-hour course is offered Saturdays and Sundays at the Rockville campus, beginning October 19th. The fee is $10 for Maryland residents and $40 for non-residents; free for MCLiberty program participants.  Upcoming class dates and times are shown HERE.
