Traffic Skills 101


The goal for the class is to become safer riding in traffic, and help decrease your chance of having an accident.  You must be a club member to participate. This is the first class of three being offered.  Classes are free for club members.

Please bring your bike, helmet, a snack, and water.  The class will include avoidance parking lot drills as well as riding safely in traffic.  

If you want to receive a certificate of completion, you also need to complete an on-line class PRIOR to taking this class. The on-line class can be found at http://www.bikeed.org/   There is a short open book quiz included.  When you log on, be sure to pull down on "Monterey", so that the instructor can access your quiz scores. This is ONLY if you want to receive a certificate for the class.  

The manual for the class can be found at: https://bikeeastbay.org/ sites/default/files/images/ PDF/Traffic%20Skills%20101.pdf   If you do NOT plan to take the on-line class, be sure to read the riding in traffic sections of this manual.  

This class is offered throughout the country, and taught by League Cycling Instructors.  The goal is to help you avoid an accident with traffic.  A few of our members have been hit by cars, and it is not something anyone aspires to!  

Space is limited, so sign up soon!
