Are you comfortable on your bike, but not so much with traffic?
Local Motion's 90-minute On-Street Bicycle Skills workshop helps you build your skills and confidence for riding on the street!
We start with a ten-minute pre-ride review of the essential principles of safe riding, along with a quick refresher on proper helmet fit and a 60-second mechanical check. Then we saddle up and head out on the street for a narrated ride with periodic pull-offs to discuss conditions encountered and how best to respond to them.
Over the course of the ride, participants learn about:
- Making safe turns
- Lane positioning
- Hazard avoidance
- Communicating with drivers
All participants must bring their bike and helmet. Bikes must be in good working order. If you need a helmet, just let us know on the form, and we'll bring one for you.
