Level 4: E-Biking with Ease: Mastering Your Electric Bike
Electric bicycles are revolutionizing bicycling and provide you with extra speed and power. E-bikes allow bicyclists to ride faster and farther, with less effort, and more carrying capacity. They also have made bicycling possible for people who didn’t think bicycling was a possibility due to age, fitness level, or disability.
With all that speed and power come a lot of hazards, though. In E-Biking with Ease: Mastering Your Electric Bike, you’ll learn what those hazards are and how to reduce them. You’ll learn how to use the unique features of your e-bike to your advantage, while learning how to handle it so you’re always in control.
This class is for people who have successfully completed Level 2: Road Ready: Bike Handling Boot Camp, or by instructor permission. It is highly recommended that you have taken Level 3: Go By Bike! Get Anywhere on 2 Wheels so you have familiarity and experience with riding in traffic. If you believe you have a basic command of riding a bike, and have some experience riding in traffic, contact me to see if you can jump into Level 4: E-Biking with Ease.
During the last session of E-Biking with Ease, we will go on a 7-mile guided ride on the trails and roads of Redmond. During this ride, we will ride as a group to several road and traffic features, which you will then ride through solo, with the support and guidance of me and your classmates.
E-Biking with Ease consists of three 3-hour sessions on consecutive Saturdays. You must be able to attend all 3 sessions.
E-Biking with Ease meets in Redmond at the City Hall campus. We use the Public Safety Building as our classroom space, and the nearby parking lots and roads for riding.
