City Cycling 101 at Atlanta Streets Alive!

Give your city cycling confidence a boost with this instructional group ride. If you're interested in this ride, but you feel unsure about participating due to hesitations about riding on city streets, please take a moment to fill out this survey so that we can work to create an experience that is accessible for all. 

What to expect

We will gather at the Propel ATL tent near the corner of Peachtree St and John Portman Blvd NW. Here, we will perform a few quick drills then hit the route on Peachtree St for a 45-minute ride of three to four gentle miles. Once rolling, we’ll

  • Take it slow, stay together, and practice our skills in a safe and supportive manner
  • Experience Atlanta’s existing bicycle facilities, like two-directional protected and/or single-directional bike lanes and sharrows, and
  • Learn to ride safely on streets without bike lanes by exercising our legal right to “take the lane.”
How to prepare

Please bring a helmet and a bicycle in good repair that fits you. We strongly recommend that you also bring:

  • Water and sunscreen
  • Sneakers or other appropriate closed-toed shoes
  • Comfortable, appropriate clothing for being outside and active
  • A friend or three!

Please arrive promptly so all participants can benefit from the full time allotted for this instructional experience. 

These free classes are provided with the support of the Georgia Governor's Office of Highway Safety.

Attendance at this or any class conducted by the Propel ATL indicates your agreement to the following liability waiver: Propel ATL Liability Waiver.
