Pride Week Urban Cycling 101

“The Halifax Cycling Coalition has partnered with Making Tracks to continue offering the popular Urban Cycling courses both in Halifax and Dartmouth. The course is 4-5 hours in length and covers the basics of riding on city streets. Classes are capped at 6 participants to ensure a comprehensive learning experience for everyone.

This week's course is happening in partnership with Halifax Pride Festival and is specifically for those who identify as LGBTQ.

Do you know where to ride in an intersection? If you are allowed to pass cars on the right? How to avoid getting doored?

We answer all of these questions and more in our Intro to Urban Cycling Course! This is a fun cycling course designed for people who want to expand on their knowledge, learn new skills, and gain the confidence to ride a bike in the city.

About the course:
