Our first essential trips series in April was hugely popular. With Atlanta's mayor recent order calling us back into Phase I, there is renewed demand. For the next four weeks, the Atlanta Bicycle Coalition will be offering a 4-lesson course. ONLINE! Simply RSVP on the date(s) below.
Whether you are riding our city streets out of necessity to get to work, to the pharmacy, to the grocery store, or to an appointment or you are wanting to just get out and move your body, the Atlanta Bicycle Coalition is here for you.
In each lesson, you will brush up on all the skills needed to safely ride in Atlanta’s streets with a focus on how to make an essential trip while social distancing. You will:
- learn where to get a bike or your bike repaired
- learn how to do an ABC-Q check to make sure you're bike is ready to go
- fit your helmet
- plan a route to your workplace, a grocery store, the pharmacy, or another essential business.
- discuss signaling and other timely communication strategies
- know how to safely take the lane
All interactive, virtual classes are 'live' on Wednesdays between 5:30 and 6:15. You will get a follow-up communication before each class on how to engage online.
We are committed to your safety as you negotiate the city streets for transportation, for essential services, and for recreation. We'll remind you of the CDC's Social Distancing and Prevention Guidelines that apply to people on bikes in each of the lessons.
These free classes are provided with the support of the Georgia Governor's Office of Highway Safety.
