You’re never too old to learn to bicycle! Instructors will work one-on-one to teach the basics of balancing, starting, stopping and steering a bike, as well as proper helmet fit and adjustment. Our skilled and patient instructors will help get you rolling in no time.
This course is a 1-hour presentation covering the basics of how to pick the right bike for everyday riding in SF, the rules of the road, and route planning. This course is a great introduction for people who are considering bicycling, or looking to brush up on skills. No bicycle, or experience is needed, and courses are free and open to anyone 14 years or older.
Looking for more than an introduction into urban riding? Our Traffic Skills 101 is a two part course using the League of American Bicyclist curriculum and covers everything you need to know about biking in the city. The two parts are divided into a 4-hour Day 1 Classroom course which is a pre-requisite for the 6-hour Day 2 On-Road course. Great for anyone wanting to hone their skills, or for those interested but intimidated by urban biking.
Want to start biking with your kiddo? That’s great! The SF Bicycle Coalition teaches family biking classes that cover everything from biking while pregnant to biking your child to school. Biking with your family allows you to spend more quality, healthy time together.
The San Francisco Bicycle Coalition is proud to help the next generation learn to ride confidently and comfortably on two wheels at the Freedom From Training Wheels Family Workshops across the city. At every Sunday Streets instructors are on hand to help caretakers and kids glide and ride on two wheels.
All of our bicycle education classes are free and open to the public. Thank you to the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency and the Transportation Authority for sponsoring these safety classes.
