Ongoing learning rules!

 

Who wants to be educated? I do! I do!

The City of Angels is putting in quite the effort to be a bike friendly town. I remember covering the first CicLAvia, such a huge success that it paved the way for that one time event to become a recurring street party all over the streets of LA.
Between regular CicLAvia events, bike lanes being added to so many roads , and the LA River plan you just might be tempted to jump on a bike and enjoy living in Southern California. Heaven knows we pay enough to live here. Enjoy the weather and check out the scenery. Here’s the thing, it can be dangerous.
So, for old pros and newbies alike, it’s never too late to learn what it takes…be safe.

Through out  LA County and available through September Metro is offering FREE bicycle traffic skills classes.

  • Registration is required and participants must be over 18.
  • All class members receive a free helmet, bike lights and safety manual.
