  6. City Cycling Classes

    Fundamentals of City Cycling

    We’ve teamed up with BikePGH to bring you Fundamentals of City Cycling Class. This class is taught at The Wheel Mill’s indoor practice facility on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 7:30 p.m. Veteran bike educators Karen Brooks and Harry Geyer are the instructors.

    The Wheel Mill’s indoor venue, and the class’s small-group, drop-in style allow participants to learn  and practice city cycling skills in a controlled, protected environment.  Participants will learn some on-bike skills from the League of American Bicyclists’ Traffic Skills 101 curriculum. Each class’s subject will differ depending on attendance, participant-demand and instructor judgement; but if you come with a particular question, you’ll leave with an answer. Classes will deal with subjects such as:

    – Proper body, hand, and foot position, and riding while standing up

    – Skills for starting & stopping in traffic

    – Using proper hand-signals to convey your movement

    – Techniques for handling common obstacles such as railroad tracks, potholes and curbs

    – How to perform a pre-ride safety check and select the right gearing

    – How to adjust your bike for better comfort and control

    Riders will have time before and after the class to practice new skills in The Wheel Mill’s Warm Up Room and Fundamental Skills Room.

    To sign up stop by the park or sign up online HERE.
