Education

62Bicycle infrastructure can only take you so far. And the reality is that bicycle infrastructure in Massachusetts is still lacking in many places. Knowing how to deal with riding in traffic, how to avoid common causes of crashes, and what’s legal or not can be the difference between having a safe, comfortable ride and a world of headache.

We offer the following trainings:

  • Basics of Better Biking (On-Bike Skills Class) – This four-hour weekend session provides guided instruction with simple practice drills in a parking lot, easy-paced riding on local roadways for short distances, and group-discussion breaks along the way.
  • Biking for Everyone Workshops – The workshop is designed for people who know how to ride a bike, but would like to start using their bikes to ride to work, school, or clubs.
  • Child Safety Education – This fast-paced 45-minute class is designed to teach how to wear a helmet properly, the rules of the road, and strategies for staying safe while bicycling.

We are also flexible to work with communities to meet their education needs. To request a training in your community use the form located on this page. Questions? Email education@massbike.org or call (617) 542-2453.
