If you know how to balance and pedal but would like to improve your bicycle handling skills and confidence - perhaps to prepare for commuting or errand-running - this on-bike, off-street practice session is for you. Your instructors will demonstrate, and you'll practice:
- Mounting and dismounting confidently
- Starting up without hesitation, stopping safely and smoothly
- Turning confidently without wobbling
- Scanning behind without veering, to check for a gap in traffic
- Steering confidently with one hand, to give a hand signal or use a water bottle
- Smoothly changing your line of travel to the left or right
Bring your working bicycle and bike helmet.
Instructors: John Ciccarelli, League Cycling Instructor; Jane Rothstein, HIP Coordinator of Environmental Behavior Change; and Ariadne Delon Scott, Stanford P&TS Bike Program Coordinator.
