WABA's City Cycling classes help riders comfortably and confidently share the road with cars and provide useful skills and techniques.  At each class, students have the option of joining the Introduction to City Cycling group or the Confident City Cycling group to learn appropriate bike-handling skills. Afterwards, go on a ride on nearby streets to test your skills.
