CyclingSavvy is a three-part course: Truth & Techniques (classroom), Train Your Bike (on-bike skills), and the Tour of Your City. You may take either or both of the first two classes “a la carte.” You must complete those two before going on the Tour. If you sign up for all three at one time, you will receive a discount.
If you wish to purchase only one or two sessions of the three-session course, go here.
If you wish to purchase all three sessions at the discounted bundled price, use the form below. The Tour option will not show until you have selected both the classroom and skills sessions.

I live and work in St. Louis. It's an honor to be able to teach this incredible new thing called CyclingSavvy. I hope I get to ride with you! Nothing would make me happier than hearing you confirm: "Yep, it's true. As a savvy cyclist, I can bike anywhere." :-)
Back when Dwight Eisenhower was president, I took off the training wheels and rode two miles from my home to downtown -- and back. Ever since then, being independent on a bike has resonated with me. I have been bicycle touring since 1971 (including a solo transcontinental and some delightful tandem tours with my wife and son), spent a few wretched seasons racing, and played in the woods hundreds of times on the then-revolutionary mountain bike. These days, I ride for fitness and utility in eastern Pennsylvania, and try to have an overnight tour or two every summer. In 2014, I rode 100 km to my 40th college reunion. Despite my best efforts to have a real career as a journalist, bicycling became my work too. I left the newspaper business for Bicycling Magazine, left Bicycling for Bicycle Guide, and left Bicycle Guide for Adventure Cyclist. I've written two books about cycling. I am certified as an Effective Cycling Instructor; I have completed Adventure Cycling's tour leader training (and staffed an Adventure Cycling tour), and I have worked as a forensic expert in bicycle accident reconstruction for decades. When I first saw Cycling Savvy, in 2009, I was stunned. This is a paradigm-busting program that teaches in a few hours things that we used to think took years. I'm thrilled to be part of Cycling Savvy.
