I offer 4 (!) ways to learn free basic bike skills through my proprietary Pedal Power with Pattie class, including the 1st bike class in the world delivered via text and TikTok!
Based on the Smart Cycling curriculum from the League of American Bicyclists (which I am certified to teach as a League Cycling Instructor), my class is condensed to fit into women and teen girls’ lifestyles better. What’s more, it includes additional lived and learned experience about Traveling at the Speed of Bike as an underrepresented person in our shared public spaces.
The first 3 are learn-from-anywhere, and the 4th is in Metro Atlanta (for now):
- TikTok! Got 8-30 seconds? Learn a thing or two, or just enjoy an inspiring tip!
- Text! Got a minute? Enjoy 22 cute, free daily texts at the time you determine! They each feature a visual, three quick bullets and a bonus link. That’s it. This ain’t rocket science. My class is on a third party platform that specializes in text-based learning and keeps your number secure (note: the platform, Arist, charges a one-time $9 administrative fee for this class).
- PDF! Wanna binge or take your sweet time? Download the exact same series of 22 lessons that are in the text class for free! People all over the world already have. Join them.
- In-Person! Got two hours? I offer one free in-person class a month. Meet Kaysha, Meghna, Helena, Diana, and some of the other women and girls who have taken my class. Stay tuned for updates about future classes (Note: All classes until June are currently full.)
Wanna just go for a bike ride and feel like the person who planned the route has your back? I see you. I got you.
