We’ll have a classroom session and an outdoor session of the League of American Bicyclists TS101 course, taught by League-certified instructors.
The classroom session covers basic bicycle fit, adjustment and on-road repairs, bicycle handling skills (shifting gears, using the brakes etc.) and how to be safe and confident on the path and the street. This session will be offered twice (take one or the other), 7-10 PM on Monday, May 16 and Friday, May 20, at the Arthur J. Clark Government Center building, 119 School Street in Waltham. You need not bring your bicycle, but if you do and arrive early, starting 6 PM, we can offer you individual help with bicycle adjustments.
The classroom sessions will be followed up by an outdoor riding session, bicycle and helmet required, 9 AM-4 PM on Saturday, May 21 at Hobbs Brook Office Park (Wyman and Lincoln Streets in Waltham. You may attend only the classroom session if you wish, but we encourage you also to attend the outdoor session, as it is where you get real practice. The classroom session is free; there’s as $25 charge for the outdoor session, to cover expenses. You must be at least 16 years of age to attend the riding session, and if under 18, a parent or guardian must also participate in the class.
