Our Mantra

The San Diego County Bicycle Coalition advocates for, and protects the rights of all people who ride bicycles. We promote bicycling as a mainstream, safe and enjoyable form of transportation and recreation.

We believe bicycling is a healthy, affordable, and environmentally friendly form of transportation and recreation that should be safe and attractive to everyone who wants to ride, wherever their destination and whatever their purpose. Bicycling is good for our communities and for the people who ride, and so we work to increase the number of people who ride bikes as a regular part of their lives. Learn more…

The program is offered in 2 sessions. A 3 hr Classroom Session (on Monday, September 18th) orients you to best cycling practices, followed by a ~6 hr Road Session (on Saturday, September 23rd) where you put what you learned in the classroom to practice. The curriculum is certified by the League of American Bicyclists (LAB) and taught across the USA. Your instructors have been certified by the LAB to teach Smart Cycling. The Smart Cycling Classroom Session I covers bicycling and the law, crashes and how to avoid them, as well as how to drive your bike safely in a variety of road, traffic, and weather conditions day or night. Your instructors have extensive commuting, touring, group and club riding experience. This session is a pre-requisite for the Smart Cycling Road Session II. The Smart Cycling Road Session II is for students who have completed the Classroom Session I. It includes (1) parking lot drills where you will increase your bike handling skills and learn some emergency maneuvers to avoid motor vehicle collisions and (2) riding on a variety of local streets and bike paths while practicing proper lane positioning and performing safe and legal turning maneuvers. You must register to participate in this course.
