"Thank you for offering this workshop to the community! I attended with friends with differing levels of experience riding on city streets. We all learned new safety tips about how to ride comfortably in traffic and really quick check-up we can do to keep our bikes running smoothly. I most appreciated the short group ride on Santa Barbara streets because we talked about every intersection and road situation both before and after riding through them. Confident City Cycling is a terrific mix of classroom demonstrations, simple bike maintenance, and cycling."
