This is how the program works:
1. Program participants MUST take a bicycle safety course before ever taking a bike on a ride. Safety courses are provided periodically by personnel from Outdoor Chattanooga.
2. After completing the safety course, participants complete 7 additional rides on the new bicycle they are trying to earn. Rides are lead by personnel from Outdoor Chattanooga along with our volunteers. Rides include downtown, the Riverpark, St. Elmo….
3. To graduate from the program, participants must complete a long ride, and volunteers must agree that they cycle safely in traffic.
4. When the above is completed, graduates receive their bike, their new helmet, a sturdy lock to keep their new wheels safe. and a bike bag for storage.
