Free cycling safety classes

July 17, 2020

The benefits of bicycling are many: it reduces carbon emissions and traffic congestion, improves physical and mental health and saves money...plus, it’s fun!

During the current Shelter in Place restrictions, many folks who haven’t ridden in awhile have been pulling old bikes out of the garage and bike shops report record highs in sales and repairs. The Sonoma County Bicycle Coalition (SCBC) is offering free workshops online to help everyone enjoy their rides as safely as possible.

The popular Smart Cycling adult safety classes covers important information on traffic regulations affecting cyclists along with “defensive driving” skills and techniques. You’ll also learn how to lock your bike, fit your helmet, perform a basic bike safety check and plan safe routes. (After completing the online 101A course, participants are eligible to take our on-bike 101B course and put the skills into action in a safe environment.) Family bike workshops address special considerations for riding with children.

Through the summer, all classes are FREE but pre-registration is required.

More information, including the full schedule, is available online at bikesonoma.org or contact 707-338-8589.
