Time to schedule Bike classes

We're offering two Bike Month prep classes this year:


* Bicycle Basics - a 1 hour class for cyclists, novice or experienced, which covers bicycle types, rules of the road and basic information for a safe and enjoyable bicycle ride.  

* Peaceful Coexistence - a 1 hour class for drivers and cyclists which reviews rules of the road for coexisting. 

The classes are offered to any employer on the 50 Corridor.  They are free, however, the employer must provide a meeting room with Power Point capabilities and guarantee a minimum of 10 participants. 

All classes are taught by League Cycling Instructors, certified by the League of American Bicyclists with more than 60 hours of training.
