Bicycle Solutions

Expert Coaching for Confident Cycling


We empower new and returning bicycle riders of all skill levels and ages, offering 1-, 2- and 3-student lessons by appointment at many Bay Area locations including San Francisco, Oakland, San Jose, Sunnyvale, Santa Clara, Mountain View, Palo Alto, Los Altos, Cupertino, Los Gatos, Campbell, Fremont, Alameda, Hayward, and Marin County.

Since 2001 our nationally-certified bicycle instructors have taught over 5,000 new bicyclists, ages 4 to 77.

We offer three levels of bicycle coaching and can tailor a class for your needs:

1 - Learn To Ride At Any Age (off-street): Balancing,  safe and confident starting, stopping, turning and shifting. We can provide a bicycle or you can bring your own . We have carefully researched the best places to learn in the Bay Area.

2 - Bicycle Handling Skills (off-street): A "skills refresher" plus scanning, hand-signaling, and lane-changing.

3 - Ride-Along Coaching (on-street): "Bicycle driving" for safe and confident riding anywhere you need to go. We can meet you at your home, work, school, or elsewhere in the San Francisco Bay Area and show you how to safely navigate wherever you want to ride your bicycle.

Bicycling for transportation solves most of the worlds problems while getting you where you need to go! You'll save money, save lives, reduce climate change, reduce pollution, improve your physical health, improve your mental health, meet your neighbors, enjoy nature, and have fun! Book a lesson to get rolling!

We also deliver online and in person group classes and organized rides for businesses and governments on many bicycling subjects including Biking Basics, Commuting, Hauling Anything by Bike, Long Distance Bicycle Touring, Smart Cycling, Family Biking, and more.
