Mentorship Program

The Mentorship program is designed to pair new bike riders (mentees) with seasoned cyclists (mentors). The goal is to help people who are less experienced with cycling to be more comfortable and bike safely while reducing the reliance on vehicles or public transit for shorter trips. Participants can attend educational workshops, make new friends, and share support with fellow community members. This program runs out of the Davis Campus (if applicable) and is free!
