CLASSES AND WORKSHOPS  | There are many places to learn valuable bike safety information as well as brush up on your bike skills around Long Beach. Here you can discover the many bike classes and workshops that take place in Long Beach. 

KNOW YOUR NEIGHBORHOOD TOURS

We are launching “Know your neighborhood tours” in late 2012 and early 2013 in conjunction with our nine council districts.  The tours are short 3 to 5 miles routes that are designed to discover local parks and green spaces, examine historical architecture and visit local businesses.  These are typically done in cooperation with a local bike shop.

The tours are designed for beginning bicyclists of all ages. They are run on safe routes that parallel major streets and offer tips and instructions for safe riding.

The tours can accommodate up to 25 people.

We will publish route maps as soon as they are available.

To assist people of all ages to bicycle more often and safely, the City of Long Beach offers free bicycle and pedestrian safety training clinics to neighborhood and non-profit organizations upon request. These hands-on, interactive events teach adults and children how to properly navigate city streets and bike facilities such as the sharrows and bike boulevards. The event also practices the three keys to biking safely in Long Beach: Being Visible, Biking in the Same Direction as Traffic, Obeying Signs and Signals.

The Family Fun Day Rodeos are conducted by Safe Moves, a nationally renowned non-profit organization that provides all the necessary equipment, bicycles, helmets and highly trained staff to make your community bike training clinic successful.

Safe Moves will also provide complimentary bike inspections, with minor repairs and adjustments done at no charge.
