SF Bicycle Coalition Intro to Urban Bicycling Workshop with Ford GoBikes

Come learn the basics of biking in San Francisco at our Intro to Urban Bicycling Workshop. In partnership with Ford GoBikes, we are offering a 90-minute course covering bicycling for everyday riding in SF, the rules of the road, route planning, how to use Ford GoBikes, and details of Bike Share for All (Ford GoBikes' program for low-income participants). The first half of the class will be in the classroom, and in the second half we'll hit the streets, checking out Ford GoBikes and going for a short group ride. This course is a great class for people who already know how to bike but are considering bicycling more in the city, joining Ford GoBikes, or looking to brush up on urban skills. All participants will get a coupon good for a one-month membership. Additionally, four free annual memberships to Ford GoBikes will be raffled off at the class.

Topics Covered:

  • Helmet fit

  • Preparing to Ride

  • Rules of the Road

  • Safety Skills & Tips

  • Route Planning

  • Locking

  • How to use Ford GoBikes

  • Bike Share for All (for low-income participants)

No bicycle is necessary for this class, although indoor bicycle parking is available. We strongly recommend participants bring their own bike helmet!
