The Almaden Cycling and Touring Club’s Academy is for anyone age 14 and older who wants to become a safer and more competent cyclist.
The twelve-class course is unique in both its breadth and depth combining lectures, demonstrations, drills, and mentored rides to give you the skills and practice necessary to Master the Road.
The Academy is held twice each year, in the spring and fall, and is taught in three, four-class Modules: Fundamental Bicycling Skills, Intermediate Bicycling Techniques, and Road Cycling Skills.
Classes are held on Saturdays at various locations in the San Jose area and start at 8:30am.
...and much more!
ACTC Academy Faculty is composed of experienced and qualified volunteer instructors, many of whom are ACTC Bike Driving Academy graduates. Some have successfully completed the League of American Bicyclist (LAB) Traffic Skills 101 or Smart Cycling class; several are League Cycling Instructors (LCIs).
"Being an experienced rider, I initially joined the Academy as a 'supporting spouse' but ended up learning a lot myself."
"After graduating from the Academy, I feel much more comfortable with hills and country roads."
