STREET SKILLS CLINICS
offered every other month
506 E. Haley Street
All levels of riders (age 16 +) are welcome: non riders can join too! Many people are intimidated and discouraged by the way cars dominate the roadway. Through education and practice, build the confidence to ride your bicycle on city streets in traffic with our local certified League Cycling Instructors (LCIs). Don't be shy: bring your list of questions.
REMINDER: Street Skills Clinics (also called Traffic Skills 101 by the League of American Bicyclists) are a pre-requisite training for all instructors, TAs and volunteers riding with our classes. They are informative, fun and FREE!

Forward thinking companies are jumping on the bandwagon to promote Health & Wellness and Active Lifestyle programs for their employees.
The Santa Barbara Bicycle Coalition will come to your workplace or community group to teach a one-hour workshop covering laws, skills and basic gear. This is a great introductory session for people who are new to bicycling or interested in learning more.
SB Bike has several options for workplace audiences that include "lunch & learn" presentation and a practical session on a bike. The structure of these sessions is very flexible.
