Safe Urban Cycling Course

Biking to work is an easy way to get exercise, save money, and feel great. However, many people hesitate to start because they’re nervous sharing the road with cars.

Provo Bicycle Collective’s Urban Biking Course is designed to help anyone feel confident on the road. Students will learn the rules of the road, basic safety precautions, and techniques about how to avoid danger.

Learn from PBC operations manager Ikaika Cox, a League Certified Instructor (League of American Bicyclists) and everyday bicycle commuter. Each class, he will give a short lecture and conduct on-bike training. Students will receive individual attention in a small-group setting.

Participants must register for the course and bring their own bike to each class. Much of the training will be on-bike, so be ready to ride!
