Women Only

Do you want to be a bike commuter, but have some questions that need answered? Do you want to learn how to fix up your bike? How to wear bike shorts or a dress when riding? This clinic, designed and taught by women, will encourage women to bike for transportation while still maintaining a sense of individual style. The program also touches on basic bicycle maintenance, flat repair, traffic skills, and safe and confident city riding. We offer Women-only versions sessions in our Maintain Your Ride and Confident City Cycling series twice per year.
