The School classes will take place twice a week, at 18:00-20:00 one Wednesdays and Thursdays. The assembly point is by the fountain in Yanka Kupala Park. Everyone will have time to learn to ride a bike and get up to speed on relevant traffic rules. The classes are scheduled to take place until October under any weather conditions.
Last year, the Cycling School was graduated by 150 Minsk residents. It shall take one 3-5 classes on average to feel comfortable behind a handlebar. The training is completely free; one only has to get registered. Besides, if you already know how to ride a bike, you can join the School as volunteer trainers.

The project has been implemented in Minsk since 2014. Since 2017, the School has been financially supported by the European Union under the Belarus Urban Cycling Project.
