Meet Lerin

IMG_6106This is Lerin. She was my student today. Lerin never learned how to ride a bike while growing up in New Orleans.  She took a True Beginners class offered by the Atlanta Bicycle Coalition a couple of years ago and has been pedaling around in parks ever since. She wants to grow her skills, however, so she can ride to the supermarket. So we worked on that. (Note: I always take these photos at the end of class, because just look at the pride on that face! People come off bikes feeling really empowered.)

See here for links to buy my book, Traveling at the Speed of Bike, on Amazon in all global markets. I’m an indie author and your support is greatly appreciated. A portion of proceeds from the sale of all books is donated to help more women and girls ride bikes. Currently, that means funding my ability to do “Pedal Power with Pattie” Basic Bike Skills Classes for Women for free.
