We just received a note that the Northwest Cycling Club, in conjunction with League of American Bicyclists, is offering a class designed to teach adult cyclists how to use a bicycle with confidence and competence for pleasure, utility, and sport under various highway, climate, terrain, and traffic conditions.
The class is organized into three levels:
A. The Basics
- The Bicycle
- Clothing and Equipment
- Bicycle Handling
B. Bicycling in Traffic
- Your Role in Traffic
- Avoiding Crashes
- Hazard Avoidance Maneuvers
C. Enjoying the Ride
- Riding Enjoyment
- Ride Etiquette
- Helping Motorists Share the Road
You will need your bike, helmet and comfortable riding clothes. At the end of the course is a brief ride for practicing skills learned.
There is a pre-requisite for this hands-on course – you must complete the online ‘classroom’ portion. This is available at www.bikeed.org.
