"Thank you for offering this workshop to the community. I attended with friends of differing experience levels riding on city streets. We all learned new safety tips about riding comfortably in traffic. I most appreciated the short group ride 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."

—Kate Faulkner, President, Channel Islands Bicycle Club

"I was an avid cyclist – as a kid I road my bike everywhere. To my surprise, after taking the SBBIKE Confident City Cycling class, I felt much more confident on the road. I knew my rights as a cyclist, how to safely navigating streets with vehicles. I highly recommend this class – you'll become a better cyclist and you can impart bike riding knowledge to kids."

—Kim Stanley-Zimmerman, Director, Safe Routes to School
