Considering riding to work some this Spring?

Wanting an alternative to driving to the store for groceries?

Come join Topeka Community Cycle Project for FUNctional Riding in Topeka 101!
Ben and Andy, TCCP League of American Bicyclist’s Certified Instructors, will cover all aspects of basic safe riding skills in everyday traffic!
Over 3 class periods we will address safe ways to operate safely in traffic, basic mechanic fixes for your average ride, and the basic responsibilities of riding a bicycle. This class is geared at offering individuals who want to ride for fun or functional parts of life, such as:
  • a grocery run to the neighborhood store,
  • visiting a friend, or
  • a social ride to a local restaurant on a Saturday afternoon!
The classes will be Monday, April 13th 6-8pm, Wednesday, April 15th 6-8pm and Sunday, April 19th 10am to 2pm. The first two days will be a classroom type setting, and the third session will involve riding and be outdoors in areas surrounding the bike shop.
The course will be held at:
