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 started using my bicycle as a primary form of transportation in 2005. I avoid icy roads, high winds, and thunderstorms, but otherwise ride year round. Cycling for transportation is an easy, fun, and rewarding way to get exercise, save money, and live greener.
I’ve used a bicycle for transportation in St. Louis for nearly nine years now, two of those with my infant/toddler son along for the ride. As a public health professional, I'm a big proponent of active living, and I'm excited to help others discover the many rewards of being a confident, empowered cyclist.
I live in the heart of the City of St. Louis, in a National Register historic district that's located almost exactly four miles due west of the Gateway Arch. I didn't merely travel to Orlando for initial CS training and instructor certification. I was "dragged there" by a fellow instructor who insisted that CS was "the best thing for urban bicycling" since my Surly Cross Check and that we just had to bring the curriculum to the Mound City. She was right: Even though I've been an urban cyclist on-and-off for the past 40 years and a dedicated one for most of the past two decades, I was "blown away" by the course and its creators. From the remarkable graphics to the extraordinarily useful communications skills (for example, "control and release"), CS is exactly what urban cyclists of any and all skill levels need for safe, joyous urban travel on two wheels. Now we need to spread the good news to a bicycling culture increasingly addicted to what frequently are self-defeating behavior patterns and unsafe infrastructure "improvements."
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." :-)
I learned to ride a bike at age 11, fell off and didn't really ride again until I was 44. Cycling Savvy changed my life. The skills I learned on my CS weekend enabled me to start commuting regularly by bicycle. Nashville is filled with kind and respectful drivers and cycling is sure to grow in our community. I ride each day in joyful hope, waiting for more cyclists to take to the road. Come and see what Cycling Savvy can do for you. Come and see!
Learning to ride a bicycle predates my first memories. From childhood through my college years a bicycle has been a key to independence. For over a decade I've used my bicycle for transportation. What I learned in Cycling Savvy made my commutes much more relaxing and enjoyable. I hope to help you find the joy of going by bicycle.
