All About Ebikes- Virtual Class

New to Electric Bikes? We love them and want to make sure you understand how and where to ride them so that you get excited about ebikes too!

This is a great class for people who are considering buying an electric bike, or unfamiliar with electric bikes.

We offer this class by request.  An ebike safety assembly is available for free to all schools in San Diego County through the SANDAG iCommute program.

Ebike Safety and Skills

Not comfortable on the road?

Get ready to ride in the city! In this class we cover general ebike safety, emergency maneuver skills, legal rights and responsibilities. It’s perfect for beginners, and equally valuable for experienced ebikers that want to brush up on road rules.

Classes are open to bike riders of all ages. E-bikes welcome! Class content applies to both regular and e-bikes. The 3-hour class is broken up into 3 parts: lecture, skills drills, road riding.

On the group ride we take frequent stops to discuss bike infrastructure and riding skills.

Youth Ebike Education in Schools

This 40-minute assembly (in-person or virtual), provided by the San Diego County Bicycle Coalition, includes the rules of the road for all bike riders, but focuses specifically on regulations for e-bikes and tips about where to ride and how to ride an e-bike legally and safely. This assembly can be tailored for elementary, middle or high school students.
