Get comfortable traveling by bike with this instructional group ride! This in-person class is designed specifically for members of the Emory University community — that includes students, staff, and faculty!
What to expect
We will gather at 1 Eagle Row — the courtyard across from Kaldis Depot — for a few quick drills then hit the city or campus streets 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.”
After class Emory's bicycle shop, the Fixie, will be open for participants to get any bike maintenance completed at the end of class!
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.
