Did you buy your bike with the intention of using it for exploring Indianapolis bicycle trails or to try bicycle commuting in Indianapolis, or riding for recreation and fitness. But then you got stopped from experiencing the joy of bicycling because you didn’t feel comfortable riding on the roads or couldn’t find a good commuting route?

One of the best ways to get around Indianapolis can be by bike, but it helps to be "street wise" in your journeys by bike.

You have a great bike – BGI wants you to enjoy riding it! Your comfort level riding on the streets is a combination of knowledge, skill and experience. We can help with the knowledge and skill portion and help provide you with additional resources to increase your experience level.

Increasing your personal comfort level riding your bike on streets will not only increase your joy of bicycling and expand the areas you can explore by bike, you’ll also be a safer bicyclist.

Launched in June 2009, BGI One-on-One StreetWise is personalized One-on-One bicycle instruction. You tell us what you need or want to learn to enjoy bicycling more and we will give you one-on one personalized bicycle training in Indianapolis. Your needs, your schedule!

One-on-One StreetWise is based on skills and topics in the League of American Bicyclists‘ SmartCycling Traffic Skills 101 curriculum. If you want to feel more comfortable riding on the streets and develop the knowledge and skills to handle most situations, sign up for a one-on-one session, customized for your riding style and experience.
