Outdoor Chattanooga helps get you up and biking
With the popularity of Chattanooga’s bicycle transit system, our affinity for hosting cycling events, and the sheer number of Chattanoogans who take to Facebook each day to rant about all the cyclists, it’s no surprise that we have been named one of “America’s Best Cities for Cycling” by Walk Score.
So it’s easy to forget that not everyone knows how to ride a bicycle. Cycling may seem like an intrinsic skill to those who have been riding since childhood, but it only takes a quick flashback to the parent who promised not let go right before the big crash into bushes to remind you otherwise.
Lucky for those who never took to two wheels (or who never got back on after the aforementioned crash), Outdoor Chattanooga will teach you how to ride a bike. Beginning cyclists are invited to come out to Coolidge Park on the second Monday of each month, where certified instructors teach the basics of biking.
The program is free, and bicycles are provided for adults and children more than four feet tall. Your next chance to master the bike lane is Monday, June 8 at 6 p.m. Reservations are required and can be made by contacting Outdoor Chattanooga at (423) 643-6888 or firstname.lastname@example.org
