New to riding a bike in the city? Getting back on a bike after a long hiatus? Just want to be more in tune with bike progress in the Alamo Area or become more confident riding on streets?
Street Skills is a free, hour-long class for adults and mature teens who want to understand where they fit on the street. It will cover important street riding information in a quick, off-bike presentation.
Join other people who ride bikes (and people new to bike riding) to learn from AAMPO’s Bicycle and Pedestrian Transportation Planner in an informal, classroom-style presentation and discussion. In a Street Skills class, we'll clarify the laws that apply to riding. We'll also provide concrete examples of scenarios you may encounter when riding a bike in the city and how best to handle them so that you enjoy pleasant, stress-free rides.
Each class participant will receive a helmet and bike light set. Advance registration is requested of all participants; walk-in students are welcome but are not guaranteed a helmet and light set.
Street Skills classes are open to adults and teens that are at least 14 years old. Participants between 14 and 18 years old must attend with a legal guardian.
Street Skills is a partnership between the Alamo Area Metropolitan Planning Organization (AAMPO) and the City of San Antonio Office of Sustainability.
