Adult Bicycle Education Classes Coming Soon

It is never too late to learn something new! If you'd like to take advantage of Santa Clara County's growing network of active transportation routes, VTA is partnering with the Silicon Valley Bicycle Coalition (SVBC) to offer free Adult Bicycle Education classes! Through 2016 Measure B bicycle and pedestrian program funds, we will be offering four types of bicycle courses for at least the next two years.

The classes are all free and will include: 

  • Biking Basics: One-hour biking workshops – for people who want a quick review of bicycle safety in a classroom setting 

  • Smart Cycling Part 1- Classroom: Comprehensive four-hour workshops to prepare you to bike safely on the road – for people who want to get into the details and learn how to choose a bike, how to ride safely, basic safety checks, and commuting tips. Classroom setting.

  • Smart Cycling Part 2- On-bike: On-bike workshops where you can practice biking on the street in small groups and with instructors – for people who want hands-on experience practicing skills. Prerequisite: Smart Cycling Part 2- Classroom

  • Bike maintenance workshops – for people who want to know how to change a tire, fix a flat, and basic maintenance

VTA’s Adult Bike Education will be rolling out in Spring of 2022 and more information will be available soon! We’re in the planning phase right now. In the meantime, do you know someone who might want to take a bike skills class? Make a list of those folks, let them know, and get them ready with what they’ll need to enroll in a bike skills class. And, if you are ready and want to be the first to know when classes come online, sign up on the waiting list here.
