In this class participants will cover the basics of defensive riding with traffic. Participants will have some riding on roads to give them experience but the roads have been carefully chosen to avoid chaotic traffic. Participants will be riding in bike friendly Brooklyn from Cadman Plaza Park at the base of the Brooklyn Bridge in Brooklyn to Coney Island’s famous Nathan’s Hot Dog stand. This is a 21 mile ride on mostly flat terrain, through Prospect Park, lots of bike lanes, and down Ocean Parkway Bike Path, one of the oldest bike paths in the country.
