Class Descriptions
Urban Riding Basics Classes
A class for new or inexperienced bicyclists looking to gain confidence navigating streets with cars. Let our Bicycle Ambassadors walk you through everything you need to know to have fun and be safe when riding your bike in the city. Class limited to 30 spots; bicycles not required. Topics covered include:
  • Buying the right bike
  • Locking it up
  • Helmets and clothing
  • Rules of the road
  • Biking in the rain
Adult Learn-to-Ride
This 2-hour class will teach adults how to ride a bicycle. Mature teenagers can also register if accompanied by an adult. Most classes take place at Lloyd Hall on Boathouse Row, and cost $10 at class's start. Participants do not need to bring a bicycle.

Biking the Suburbs Workshops
Do you want your community to be bicycle friendly? This workshop will address understanding what to ask for, building local support, securing funds, and getting the attention of your elected officials in order to make it happen. Learn all about The Circuit, our region's burgeoning regional trail network, and how you can use this powerful tool to ensure your favorite trail gets built and is well maintained.

Bike Rides
We lead periodic bicycle rides, typically centered around a program (like Women Bike PHL) or a new trail to explore! We also post rides offered by other organizations and groups on our events calendar.
