Urban Riding Classes — Get Comfortable Pedaling Portland & Beyond!

Join one of the BCM’s nationally-certified bicycle instructors for some tips and answers to questions about riding in traffic. Review when and how to “take the lane,” how to safely make left turns on busy streets, how to avoid being “right-hooked” by drivers, how to equip your bike, what to wear, and more! Content will be adjusted to fit the group’s needs. 

“[T]hanks to you for the most excellent learning experience … We have an increased comfort level riding on urban roads and are MUCH safer now doing it.” – C&T, South Portland

Bring your bike and helmet (required), and come prepared for fun, safety, and learning!
