Commuter Mentoring

Have you ever thought about riding your bike on the street?  There are a lot of great reasons to ride for recreation and transportation, but for some, it's just too intimidating. 

Could you use the comfort of experienced riders helping you on your first rides?  Or are you a grizzled bike commuter who wants to pass her experience on to others?  This is the ride for you!

Figure 1. This short video is a primer for riding a bike on the road safely.

These are educational rides.  We won't be going fast and no one will be dropped.  If you're an experienced cyclist looking to get a good workout, this ride is not for you.  If you are a cyclist of any experience level looking to teach or to learn how to be safer and more comfortable riding on the road, this is your place.

Commuter Mentoring rides will typically be the evening of the last Tuesday of the month.  This will allow us to make our way to the monthly Bicycle Advocacy of Central Arkansas social, where enthusiastic cyclists experienced with road riding will toast your road riding achievement.  See below for specific dates and times.

All participants must provide their own bike and helmet.  Participation in the ride requires a helmet.  If bike or helmet availability is a barrier for your participation, please contact John Landosky jlandosky@littlerock.gov, and I will try to do what I can to help.
