Class: Safe Riding on the Road for Leisure, Commuting and Training

Knowing where to position a bike on the roadway for high visibility is the most critical skill you can learn if you plan to “Share the Road” with cars. This course helps new and seasoned cyclists learn to ride safely, legally, and with confidence on the road.

Topics in this course include:

  • Rider predictability, visibility and awareness
  • Potential hazards and dangerous scenarios
  • Crossing multiple lanes for left hand turns
  • Crash avoidance and emergency maneuvers
  • Scanning while maintaining a straight line
  • Emergency turns in the event a car turns in front of you
  • Dodging objects while maintaining control
  • Accessories and tools for smart and safe cycling
  • Basic maintenance and tire changing

After completing the classroom portion and bike handling drills, students take to the street, practicing the principles they have learned. After completing this course, students view “Sharing the Road” in a completely new light, be it behind the wheel of a car or on their bike.    

Class was held Sept 21st

Times:  9:15 am – 2:00 pm
Where:  Roswell Area Park
                Bill Johnson Community Activity Building

Editorial

Bikes on the road in North Fulton

A North Fulton Neighbor newspaper column, by Steve Howard:

Bikes on the road test my patience.  Can’t they ride on the sidewald, don’t they have to obey the law, who do they ride in the lane when there is room on the shoulder?  The roads are for cars, not bikes.  Don’t those women and men riding their bikes on the roads know how dangerous it is for everybody?

Oh, I forgot to mention, I’m also a cyclist…  Read more here
