Bethesda has seen an increase in bicycle commuting activity. This is expected to continue because of the greater awareness of the benefits of physical fitness. Bethesda Transportation Solutions (BTS) supports bicycle commuting by providing bike racks throughout the central business district and monitoring the demand for additional facilities. BTS also distributes printed information about bicycle safety and maps of bike routes.

To support area bicycling commuters, BTS is pleased to announce their partnership with the Washington Area Bicyclist Association (WABA) and Montgomery County Commuter Services to provide Bike Classes in and around Downtown Bethesda!

The next Confident City Cycling class will be held on Saturday, November 3 from 10:00 a.m. until 1:00 p.m. in the GEICO Parking Lot located at 5260 Wisconsin Avenue in Friendship Heights. Click here for more information.

Bike Education classes have options for riders of any experience or skill level and are designed to teach the techniques and knowledge critical to riding safely on city streets.
