Traffic Skills 101

Traffic SKills 101

Traffic Skills 101 is a fast-paced class that will give you the confidence to ride safely and legally in traffic or on the trail.  You will learn how to conduct bicycle safety checks, fix a flat, on-bike skills, and crash avoidance techniques. Our goal is to help people feel more secure about getting on a bike, to create a mindset that bikes are treated as a vehicle, and to ensure that people on bikes know how to ride safely and legally. Generally, 1/2 of the time is on-bike, so students should be prepared to ride.
