Designed for a rider who is new to urban life, or an urbanist new to bike riding, Cyclists Inciting Change through Live Exchange, aka C.I.C.L.E., hosts a series of workshops designed to help bike meet pavement in a safe way in the urban jungle we call home.

This Saturday in Glassell Park, they’ll be holding such a class for eight riders.  The fee is $15, with discounts available on a sliding scale. These workshops can fill up quickly so call 323-478-0060 or info@CICLE.org if you’re interested.
