Learn to Ride a Bike!

Our City is seeing a continuing increase in bicycling, and Council has given support and investment in developing better bicycle infrastructure around the city for the past several years. In complement to those efforts, City program goals, and in support of encouraging safe bicycling in and around Charlottesville, the City is offering free bicycle education classes to City residents as a pilot this September. The classes being offered are for children and adults, for beginners getting basic skills under their belt and for more experienced riders who want to know the rules of the road and how to ride safely in Charlottesville with traffic.

Keeping our roads safe and moving for all users is important for our community, and we all play a role. We would like to request your neighborhood association’s help in announcing these classes to the community. Could you please include an announcement about these classes at your next meeting and share the attached information via your newsletter and/or website?

More information can be found at and classes can be registered for through the Parks and Recreation program guide.
