City to Offer Safe Everyday Bicycling Classes

The City of Charlottesville's Environmental Sustainability, Parks & Recreation, and Neighborhood Development Services have teamed up to offer bike education classes.  These classes will cover rules of the road, safety tips, and on-bike skills practice.

The first two classes (September 7 and September 14) are geared towards kids.  The third class (September 21) is for adults with little or no experience, or just haven't rode a bike in awhile.  The final class (September 28) will increase the confidence and knowledge of adults who already ride.

Classes will be held in the upper parking lot of Washington Park.  Skills practice will be held in this enclosed parking lot separated from vehicle traffic.

The classes are free for residents of Charlottesville ($15 for non-residents).  Participants should bring their own bike, helmet, and water bottle.  For more information, and to register for a class, please visit
