Cycling Savvy classes teach the principles of Mindful Bicycling in three separate courses: in the classroom, on the bicycle, and out in the city. The national program is taught locally by our very own Pamela Murray. About Pam from the Cycling Savvy site:
I’ve only been riding my bike since 2006. I love riding my bike every day everywhere. I want to teach Cycling Savvy classes so you can ride your bike everywhere. Riding a bike using the Cycling Savvy skills and strategies empowers most people to be able to ride where ever they want to go. I founded Charlotte Spokes People to get more people riding their bike. I’m also the Charlotte coordinator for Bike Benefits, the organizer and leader of the Plaza Midwood Tuesday Night Ride and the Sunday Slow Ride. Come ride with me.
