Bike Walk CT is now offering a women's only Traffic Skills class.
When: Saturday June 26th, 9:00 a.m.- 5:00 p.m.
Where: Town Hall 933 Hopmeadow St Simsbury
Traffic Skills 101 is a fast paced class that covers bike handling skills, crash avoidance techniques, proper lane and intersection positioning in moderate to heavy traffic and CT traffic law as it pertains to bicyclists. The class also covers basics on how to dress for your cycling activity, what equipment you might need, nutrition, and hydration for the longer ride, and bicycle maintenance. At the end of class we will cover flat tire repair for those who do not know how to do this. This class begins in the classroom, and moves outdoors to a "practice space" and then on to the road for a bike ride. It can be taught in a single session or in 2 to 3 sessions.
This class is also a prequisite to taking the LCI instructor training class.
