Riding Safely and With Confidence
Thanks to Ed Moyers and others who worked his fanny off making this happen. And to Mike Duralia for an outstanding teaching job. This League of American Bicyclists certified course teaches cyclists how to better operate safely, effectively and confidently on city streets. Topics include: legal rights and responsibilities, road safety practices, checklist of road danger zones, how to outfit yourself and your bike, etc.
This course was identical to the one successfully offered at Dowd YMCA last summer by John Ciccarelli. CABA hopes to offer it again in the Fall, and possibly make it a permanent program for the general public. Overcoming the fear of riding on streets is one of the most important obstacles to overcome – specifically in Charlotte’s bicycle un-friendly street system.
