What is one of the most common reasons people don’t ride their bikes? Their bikes need repairs! We’re aiming to solve that problem by taking bike maintenance to neighborhoods. This spring we’re debuting our first ever Bike Fix-It Bonanza which will do exactly that. We’re partnering with bike shops, mobile mechanics, neighborhood partners, CSU and others to to a bike maintenance BLITZ! We're aiming to provide tune-ups for 150 people in 3 hours and have a blast while doing it. More information about station locations coming soon! Check www.fcgov.com/bicycling for updates.

Smart Cycling is a course for moderately experienced, returning and seasoned cyclists alike that will give you the confidence to ride safely and legally in traffic or on the trail. You will learn how to conduct bicycle safety checks, on-bike handling skills and crash avoidance techniques. The class consists of 3 hours of classroom-style instruction, 1.5 hours of bike handling skills practice and an ride on city streets and trials. We recommended this class for adults and youth above age 14 (ages 12-14 can be accepted upon instructor approval). Participants should be prepared to ride their bicycle as there is a riding portion to this class. A helmet and bicycle in good working condition are required. A water bottle is recommended. This course is a training requirement for Silver Level Bicycle Ambassadors.
