A little knowledge
(Here’s the full testimonial) Such a fun morning on the Beltline with Pattie Baker! It’s been ages since I rode a bike and I’ve never had any training on “road rules.” Most of my experience has been on deserted islands where everyone was on a bike, or in Rota where the streets were super narrow and bicycles and mopeds were the norm. I’ve missed some neat opportunities and experiences by not being comfortable enough to ride in an urban area. Pattie’s Pedal Power class, designed especially for women, was exactly what I needed to “get back on the bike!” After getting hands on with some bike basics and covering some simple – but life saving – skills, we set off on a 4-6 mile trek along the Beltline and even through several tricky intersections. I think the best thing for me was seeing and being told what those markings in the “bike friendly” streets mean! A little knowledge goes a long way to feeling more confident! Can’t wait to get back out there!!
