Make cycling safe, easy and efficient!

Reduce your stress, save money and enhance your health!

Join us Wednesday, August 11 from 6-9PM. We will show you simple strategies to eliminate intimidating barriers and ride with ease and confidence in places you might never have thought possible.

The safest and most competent traffic cyclists are not bold or fast. We are observant. We identify patterns in the chaos and take advantage of them.

Anyone can learn the simple skills of safe and effective cycling. CyclingSavvy makes it easy and fun!

Through guided discussion with video and animation, we expose the patterns and show simple strategies that virtually eliminate the risk and frustration most cyclists experience. The behavior of other drivers is predictable, even when they make mistakes. We show cyclists how to avoid those mistakes. In the class, we look at some of Orlando’s challenging intersections and interchanges and break them down with illustrations and video to show how any cyclist can handle them with ease and confidence. The problem-solving skills translate well to any situation you might face, here or when riding in another city.

Enjoy safe and stress-free travels on our roads. By learning a few simple techniques, you can make cycling virtually conflict-free… and actually safer, more enjoyable and less stressful than driving a car!

If you have friends or family members who want to get into cycling for fun or transportation, this is a great way to get them started. The knowledge gained is effective whether you want to ride to work, to the grocery store or to the nearest bike path.

The class is hosted by
VHB MillerSellen
. It will be held at 225 E. Robinson Street, Suite 300, Landmark Center Two, Orlando, FL 32801.

This class can be taken a la carte, or as part of the CyclingSavvy package.

    The first paragraph below the photo is one of the greatest truths that few ever realize. Speaking only for myself, however, I’d like to get 2mph more going down Bear Creek Parkway without a tailwind.

      My only quibble is with the word “chaos”. I think that overstates the apparent complexity of traffic. Busy, maybe. Noisy, perhaps.

    MikeOnBike, I would guess that Keri agrees with you, being as chaos has no patterns. Perhaps ‘apparent chaos’?

    There’s a saying that it isn’t what we don’t know that hurts us but what we know that ain’t so. Typically I ride my road bikes between 9 and 12,000 miles each year and I ride them anywhere I want to go in daylight or darkness. I enrolled in the three-part Cycling Savvy course. I learned fundamentals I don’t remember thinking about . . . no wonder I wasn’t very helpful to beginners. Convictions that I held resolutely were challenged and shown to be indefensible. This course is wonderful for timid cyclists and a must for those of us that know it all.

    The modern, scientific definition of chaos is more along the lines of a complex order which may not be discernable to the untrained or one lacking the right equipment.

    I was in New York City for the first time a couple weeks ago; mostly walking, but I also rented a bike for an hour. At first the traffic (and by traffic I mean pedestrians and cyclists as well as motor vehicles) seemed “chaotic” in the conventional sense, but after some time I came to understand the underlying order.

    CyclingSavvy does much the same — it helps you understand the underlying order of traffic from a bicyclist’s perspective, and how to take advantage of that order.
