The next local Confident City Cycling (aka Traffic Skills 101) class will be held April 26-27 and will cover laws affecting bicyclists, the importance of visibility and predictability, lane positioning, intersection safety, interacting with pedestrians, trail etiquette, bicycle safety checks, fixing a flat, on-bike skills, crash avoidance techniques, basic bicycling gear, and much more!
Last fall, we had 9 students take this course, with varying levels of experience. Some had ridden 40-65 miles in one day in the last 12 months and many told us they had ridden 0-2 miles in one day in the last 12 months. Everyone had a great time taking the class and participated in the group ride around Harrisonburg.
This April’s class will be taught by Thanh Dang of Harrisonburg, VA and Tasha Walsh of Lexington, VA. Both are League Certified Instructors.
