A Smart Cycling Classroom class.
The BiCi Co BIKELIFE - Hartford! Festival is back for the 5th year! We are rolling fast in 2021, after 2020 BIKELIFE was disrupted by the pandemic.
Due to the pandemic, we shifted 2021 BIKELIFE to June 21st through 26th. That way, almost all city residents over age 16 will have gotten a COVID vaccination. Our bicycle safety classes and the outdoor BIKELIFE Festival on June 26th will take precautions based on the city's guidance at the time for spacing, masking, etc. Remind your parents, aunts, elders and teachers to #ProtectTheBlock and #GetTheShot.
*** BIKELIFE! as easy as 1-2-3 ***
(1) Register with this form, and pay $20 (online, or when you pick up the bicycle)
(2) Show up for the two-hour bicycle safety course you registered for, sign in, and complete the FULL course, including the helmet fit and ABC Quick Check demonstration. Late arrivals and leaving early do not count!
(3) Pick up your lock, lights, and upcycled bicycle on Saturday, April 26th in the Hudson St park near BiCi Co. Don't forget your helmet!

To qualify for an upcycled bike (after $20 registration fee), each youth must complete an in-person bicycle safety class. Not just a bicycle, the youth will also get a helmet, lights, and a lock. The classes will have spacing and require face masks, as will likely still be required - similar to in-school requirements.
Bicycle Safety Course Attendance is Required - You must attend one of the five safety courses scheduled conveniently in different locations throughout the city. A parent or guardian can attend the class with their youth, and we think that's awesome! This form is how you register for the safety course most convenient to your schedule and where you live.
Bicycle Safety Course Time - All courses are 9:30 am to 11:30 am. Don't be late!
