Enroll or get added to notifications of upcoming classes by using the form below, – provide feedback on scheduling dates i.e. weekend or weekdays preferred.

Classes are based on the League of American Bicyclists curriculum and taught by a League Certified instructor (LCI). The classroom portion will be held indoors while the road skills portion is outdoors, on street and on location. You will need a standard bicycle and helmet for the class (not a pedicab).

Classes will generally be scheduled monthly or on an as needed basis. The class offered is a comprehensive bicycle safety course aimed specifically for pedicab certification with the goal that operators leave with the skills and knowledge to operate safely in urban traffic. Covered but not limited to are cyclists rights and responsibilities, California Vehicle Code for bicyclist and pedicabs, predictable safe riding techniques, fitting helmets properly, hidden dangers, crash statistics, types and diversion techniques.
To facilitate the initial licensing process, classes will be held “as often as needed” while the program is beginning (2013).

Please note: classes that don’t have a sufficient number of students may be canceled or rescheduled. 

If you are an owner operator simply email with the name of your company (if any) and that you are ready to sign up for the training. Please indicate which class you would like to attend. If no classes are currently open for enrollment we will notify you as soon as dates are chosen.

If you are an individual working for a company please email with the name of the company that hired you or you plan to work for and the date and time of the class you would like to attend. If no classes are currently open for enrollment we will notify you as soon as dates are chosen.
