Sustainable Cycle

SIU Sustainability has partnered with Recreational Sports and Services to provide participants with an introduction to urban cycling. The class will focus on basic bicycle skills, commuting in urban areas, and road safety; all while exploring a couple of routes in Carbondale.

There will be 2 classes to choose from this Fall. Each class will meet twice; on Tuesday and Thursday.

For each class, Session 1 will cover introductory material and go for a short ride. The Session 1 lesson will focus on skills such as: checking the bike for preparedness, road safety, signaling, and efficient gear shifting.

Session 2 will recap the first session, then go for a medium-length ride around Carbondale. During Session 2, there will be a discussion on bicycle maintenance and repairs, as needed.


Where: Starts from the Student Recreation Center
Who: Anyone with an active Rec membership (students and community members)
