City of Charlottesville Offering Bicycle Education Classes

Posted: Updated:

People living in Charlottesville have the chance to take free bicycling education classes this month. The city of Charlottesville is launching the pilot program in an effort to promote safe cycling.

On Saturday mornings throughout September, cyclists of all ages can learn the rules of the road and how to ride safely.

Organizers say they will focus on skill drills in a traffic-free environment.

"This program is really aimed at trying to get at that part of how do we inform and reach out to people who are interested in maybe trying to cycle but also people who are also bicycling around town and helping to support that so everyone can help use the roads safely," climate program coordinator Susan Elliot said.

Classes are free for Charlottesville residents and $15 for everyone else. For more information, click here
