Smart Biking - Adult Bike Safety Classes

Posted by Heather Haylett on May 15, 2018 in Bicycle Safety

Formerly known as Traffic Safety 101

Bike Easy has reformatted our Adult Bike Safety Class curriculum. The two-day class formerly titled “Traffic Safety 101” will now be called “SMART BIKING” – a class structured in three sessions:

Session 1 – Getting to Know Your Bike and Your Rights (in-class/off-bike)
Topics: Choosing a bike, adjusting the bike, maintenance, clothing/gear, rules of the road

Session 2 – Smart Bike Handling (in-class & on-bike)
Topics: handling basics, shifting gears, where to ride, infrastructure, crashes and hazards, night riding, rural riding

Session 3 – Smart Road Riding (outside/on-bike)
Topics: drive train maintenance, riding with a group, sharing paths and trails, inclement weather, night riding, rural riding, flat fixing

Participants may complete session 1 and 2 in any order but must complete both 1 & 2 before signing up for the final session 3.

Note: Upon completion of all three sessions a Smart Biking certificate will be awarded.

All sessions will meet at Bike Easy – 2100 O.C. Haley Blvd.
