Classes/Custom Content

34732568025_604ce27da0_oWanna’ get back on a bike? I can help. I’m a League of American Bicyclists’ League Cycling Instructor (#5382). I teach Pedal Power with Pattie classes in metro Atlanta (including occasional free lunch-n-learns for corporations and municipalities, plus free semi-private classes all over metro Atlanta as book sales enable me to fund them), plus I was hired to teach seniors-on-trikes and an earn-a-bike program for youth in need in the City of Decatur, GA (a certified Bicycle Friendly Community).

I especially like to work with women returning to bikes. I cover a wide variety of Smart Cycling topics in an active setting, customized to meet your specific goals and comfort level. Snag a free semi-private class here. Contact me about other teaching opportunities. I am also tapped in nationwide through the League of American Bicyclists’ League Cycling Instructor hub, so I can try to connect you to someone locally if you don’t live near me.


Want to shout it out about the great bikey things happening in your city? I offer “Ride and Write” custom content after road-testing your city or covering (through hands-on experience) your other desired bike-related story*. These are positive 500-word blog posts with original photos for you to run on your city’s Active Living blog and amplify across your social media platforms. I can also customize a complete editorial calendar for you if you want ongoing blogging, and I can provide social media amplification for you as an additional service as desired. This professional service is passion-project-priced for corporations, cities, schools, and organizations at just $75 per hour  (my professional writing rate is typically $150 per hour).  (See my resume, with link to recommendations on LinkedIn, here**). I want to see more people out there biking and I am willing to invest in it through this discounted offer of my professional skills.

*In metro Atlanta areas (preferably accessible by mass transit) with no additional travel charge; in other cities throughout the USA or world with expenses paid.

**Note: Cox Enterprises hired me for years to write both a business-to-business blog and a business-to-consumer blog, plus I have blogged for numerous small businesses and non-profit organizations as well. I have been blogging personally, including a blog with more than a million visits, since 2006. Contact me to discuss your particular details and to schedule.
