SAVANNAH, Ga. (WSAV) – The Savannah Bicycle Campaign wants you to love riding and still be safe. There’s a free class this weekend and you’re invited.

BikeSAV – Down and Dirty Savannah Cycling Class – http://bicyclecampaign.org/event/bike-sav-down-and-dirty-savannah-cycling-class/

With SCAD welcoming its largest incoming class, we felt it was necessary to provide these students with a down and dirty cycling class that prepares them for riding in Savannah. The BikeSAV classes will be led by Nedra Deadwyler, education program manager for the statewide advocacy group, Georgia Bikes! Deadwyler, who is based in Atlanta, is a recipient of the League of American Bicyclists’ Gail and Jim Spann Educator of the Year Award. The award is given to a League Cycling Instructor who exemplifies dedication to teaching bicycle safety to people of all ages and abilities. League Cycling Instructors must pass a rigorous training program before they are certified.

Topics include:

How to stay safe on Savannah’s streets
How to protect your bike from thieves
How to find the best bike routes in Savannah
How to keep your bike running smoothly

Class is Saturday Sept. 24 at 9 a.m.

All participants receive a FREE light set. The class is FREE, but space is limited and registration is required. You must have a bicycle to participate in the class. If you do not have a bike, we can arrange one for your use for a small fee. Helmets are required for this ride. If you do not have a helmet, we will have helmets available for purchase for $8. Student status is not required to attend.
