Get Rolling: On-bike riding skills class

(May 25, 2016) Is the road beckoning but you're not sure you're ready? This adult-oriented course will get you up to speed. The first part of the workshop focuses on the rules of the road and on-the-bike technique like signaling, shifting and braking. The second half will have you venturing out to practice these skills, and take a short and easy ride around town so you can flex your new skills and we can explore the wonderful world of two-wheeled Portland.

Join Portland By Cycle on Saturday, June 4, from 9:00am to 1:00pm, at the PCC CLIMB Center (SE Water Ave and Clay St) for this session with Tori Bortman of Gracie's Wrench. Tori is a certified cycling instructor with the League of American Bicyclists, frequent contributor to Bicycling Magazine, experienced bike mechanic, and a dynamic and engaging skills trainer.

Please bring your bike, helmet, water, a snack, and wear weather-appropriate clothing. If it's been a while since you've pushed the pedals, please bring your bike to a local bike shop for a safety check before the class/ride. Pre-registration is required (jeff.smith@portlandoregon.gov).
