Think you know everything you need to know about bicycling in traffic? Don’t be so sure.

Not quite confident enough to venture off the recreational trails and onto the streets with your bike?

You can learn what to do, this month, for just $8 in “Bicycle Traffic Skills 101.” Here’s more, from the instructor:

A League of American Bicyclist (LAB) sanctioned class “Bicycle Traffic Skills 101” will be taught on October 16th and 17th.  The class was developed by the LAB and is taught by a certified League Cycling Instructor (LCI).

The primary purpose of this class is to teach you how to safely ride in traffic.  Other topics covered are bicycle selection and fit, bicycle accessories and clothing, and minor bicycle repair.  The class teaches several bicycling handling skills using riding drills.  On Saturday, we will be riding on city streets for about 6 miles.

The class begins on Friday October 16th, from 6 pm until 10 pm, and continues on Saturday, October 17th from 9 am to 2 pm.  There will be an $8 fee to cover materials.

To enroll, email salamon.paul@imonmail.com.

Last chance to do this for just $8. Check it out.

    Thanks for the link, Ken. I agree with much of what the guy says, particularly that motorists can’t be trusted. That’s one reason I encourage people to wear helmets, use a mirror and stay alert.

    I have read the book by R Hurst mentioned in the link/video and the “artistic” style of riding promoted in it is very similar to the LAB guidelines. In fact LAB endorses this book!
