Learn to drive your bike! Bike-Ed for SoCal commuters.

The advocacy group I’m working with is offering some awesome bike education. I was a pretty experienced commuter when I took the class and I still learned a lot of useful techniques. I highly recommend the class!!!! I know the two instructors personally and they are top-notch!

On our roadways, bikes are treated as vehicles. Simply knowing how to ride a bike is not the same as knowing how to operate a bike safely and legally.

The Bike Ed program is a set of curricula for adults and children and the certified instructors that teach it. BikeEd classes are taught across the United States by certified League Cycling Instructors (LCI).
