Kids on Bikes: Smart Cycling Class
April 5, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - April 6, 2019 @ 3:00 pm EDT
Kids Smart Cycling Class
Kids on Bikes will be hosting a Smart Cycling class as a professional development opportunity for our staff, but we encourage other community members to participate. The Smart Cycling class may be useful for anyone who hopes to lead group rides, coach bicycling camps, volunteer with Kids on Bikes, or just wants to become a more confident rider.
Friday, April 5th: 6pm – 9pm
The first section of the class will take place on Friday at the Pedal Station (1026 S Tejon St.) and will cover basic bike maintenance, bicycling attire and accessories, and nutrition. Participants only need to bring themselves to this session, though we do encourage arriving by bike if possible.
Saturday, April 6th: 9am – 3pm
The second day of the class will take place at the Colorado Springs Sustaina center (704 E Boulder St.) and involves a mix of classroom time, on-street and trail riding, and bicycling skill practice. Participants must provide their own bike and helmet.
Weather Policy: We expect the class to take place rain or shine, but exceptions may be made if roads are dangerously icy or snowy. There is no make-up date scheduled.
