BPAC to lead Smart Cycling class on September 24

Found a new love for cycling during the pandemic, and want to develop your confidence and competence as a rider? Wondering about how to start commuting by bike? BPAC is hosting a FREE Smart Cycling class, designed to help people ride more safely and confidently. Whether you’ve been riding for years or just started riding because of the pandemic, you’ll learn useful skills and tips.

The Smart Cycling class consists of (1) four hours of online instruction, which you can do at any time before the on-bike portion of the class; and (2) four hours of on-bike instruction, which will be held on Friday, September 24 from 2-6 p.m. at Alexandria’s Ben Brenman Park. The on-bike portion will cover skills to help keep you safe while riding, and will also include a short group ride.

This class is for people who know how to ride a bike and would like to expand their skills. Registration is open to adults and youths 16 years of age or older.

This class is funded by a Northern Virginia Regional Commission/VA DMV grant. After completion of the course, students are required to participate in two volunteer activities promoting bicycling or walking.
