MCDOT to offer $10 adult cycling classes this fall

Montgomery County residents over 18 can register to take a bicycling class this fall for just $10, thanks to a partnership between the county’s Department of Transportation (MCDOT) and the Washington Area Bicyclist Association (WABA). Four free scooter classes will also be offered with no registration required.

Local officials like County Executive Marc Elrich (D) continue to emphasize cycling as a safe and environmentally-friendly alternative to driving, but Elrich reiterated the importance of learning to bike “safely and responsibly.” The county is currently home to 112 miles of bike lanes and bike-friendly areas.


“We have seen a great demand for adult bike classes,” said MCDOT director Chris Conklin. “We expect this interest to continue to grow. We are actively expanding our bike network.” [MyMCM]
