Life looks different when you’re traveling at the speed of bike. Happier. Friendlier. Simpler. What’s more, you can improve your health, reduce stress, and save money, thereby maybe freeing yourself from a few worries. No wonder teen girls and women all over the USA are riding bikes to freedom, especially now during these challenging times. Wanna join us?

If you know how to pedal a bike and have access to a bike in good working condition with at least three gears, this holistic, inclusive class may be just what you need to learn, improve, or refresh your bike skills. (Truth? You don’t even really need to ride a bike to benefit from this class, so if you’re still at the “thinking about riding” stage, taking this class is a great next step!)

You receive a text message once a day over 22 consecutive days at a time you determine. Each includes:

    • a visual;
    • a brief intro to the day’s topic;
    • 3 quick, helpful bullets;
    • a Bonus Link.

You can do what’s suggested (or not — no pressure here) whenever you want. Time commitment for improved skills: less than 2 minutes a day (plus any additional time you spend on the Bonus Links and on practicing). Enroll here. Choose the delivery option you prefer (SMS, which is text directly to your phone; Facebook; or WhatsApp). The class is delivered through Arist.co — I don’t have access to your phone number.

I am certified to teach the League of American Bicyclists’ Smart Cycling curriculum, from which I created this proprietary class for you (with additions from my lived experience as well as research specific to girls and women in public spaces). I am also the author of a book named Traveling at the Speed of Bike, and this blog by the same name.

And let’s not get hung up on paperwork. As this class has no in-person or live online component where I could assess your progress, I am not requiring signed releases to participate in the class. Note that the League of American Bicyclists and I are not liable for any action you take as a result of participating. Use good judgment, ok?

I am able to develop and offer free classes such as this thanks to your support of my book, Traveling at the Speed of Bike. All proceeds are used to help empower more girls and women.

I use all proceeds from the sale of my other book, Food for My Daughters, to help provide fresh food to those in need. I’m an indie author and your support is greatly appreciated. Here is my Amazon USA site, if interested.

I’m currently working on a new book about leaving suburbia for the Peace Corps (for which I was scheduled to leave in two weeks, before the current global pandemic delayed departures until at least September).
