The kids are back in school. The fall season of great weather will be here soon. And, it’s second half of the year’s riding season here in the region. Bike Easy is offering the Traffic Safety 101 Bike Education Safety course one last time in 2016. On September 20th, 21st, and 22nd from 6p to 9p at Bike Easy, 2100 Oretha Castle Haley Blvd. The class is FREE.Registration is required. It usually costs between $25 and $35.

This class will help you ride safely and effectively — to work, to the store, around your neighborhood or around the state. Most of us were taught to ride a bike when we were very small, but many of us were never taught how to drive our bicycle in traffic. Traffic Skills 101 fills that gap. It is Driver’s Ed for cyclists.

Traffic Skills 101 is taught by League-certified instructors, and the curriculum covers everything, including bike selection, simple maintenance, fixing a flat, and strategies for riding a bike safely and confidently. Traffic Skills 101 is taught in three sessions. Each three-hour classroom session with on-bike sessions practicing bike drills in a parking lot, a ride on city streets, and essentials in night riding. Each attendee is encouraged to bring a bike ready for night riding and any reflective gear they might have.
