Safe and Confident Bicycle Handling Skills Lab

July 10, 2014 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm


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 attend to you as you practice:

  • Mounting and dismounting confidently
  • Starting up without hesitation; stopping safely and smoothly
  • Turning confidently without wobbling
  • Scanning behind without veering, to check for gaps 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, and Jane Rothstein, HIP Coordinator of Environmental Behavior Change.
Location: Stanford Campus Parking Lot TBD (directions to be given before class)
$40 fee

Register here.
