Share this event:


::: open to Female-Identified people ONLY! Thank you in advance  :::


Part II:

Now that you've got basic mechanic skillz under your saddle, it's time to learn the rules of the road.

(Part I is NOT a prerequisite to participating in Part II!)


In this workshop, we'll cover:
~ fundamental traffic safety
~ laws for cyclists
~ when & where you can cycle on sidewalks
~ where to find the safest bicycle routes in Midtown & Beyond!
~ how to signal, merge, turn, and be as safe and predictable as possible
~ what kinds of gear you might consider to be even more safe
~ how to make your bike (and its components) less vulnerable to theft

Please bring:
~ your bicycle, ready to ride (we will have a pump available if your tubes need air)
~ helmet, if you have one
~ bike lock, if you have one
~ closed-toe shoes
~ water
~ snack(s)

This workshop will be at Addison's Bicycle Reparium, located at 2311 S St. in Midtown, Sacramento.

There will be demos, a little bit of lecture, and lots of practicing of the new skills in close proximity to the meeting place.

I have high hopes that Part II will be just as awesome as Part I!

UpShift Cycling is a community group founded by two rad female cyclists, Alexandra F. Williams & Angie Brandt, in Sacramento, California, who are passionate about getting more babes on bikes, and claiming our space on the road! We believe that this begins with teaching female-identified cyclists and wannabes how to talk about bicycles: bicycle anatomy, then performing basic bike maintenance (preventative & incidental) with accessible tools. Alexandra sold her car in 2006, Angie in 2004, commuting & navigating the globe solely via bicycle and public transportation. With a combined 18 years of a car-free lifestyle, we have a lot of bicycle-based knowledge and experience, and are eager to share! We look forward to joining you on your journey to a more bicycle-oriented way of exploring!
