Can You Handle It? Beginning Bike Handling Skills Workshop

Can You Handle It?
Beginning Bike Handling Skills Workshop

Saturday, March 29, 2008 10:00 AM

Bike handling skills play a BIG part in bicycle safety—both on the street and on the trail. If you are still a little unsteady on your bike, this hands-on workshop will help you develop the stability and confidence that you need to enjoy the exciting world of bicycling for fun and transportation.

This workshop is part of C.I.C.L.E.'s 'Bikes in the City' Workshop Series and is designed specifically for people who already know how to balance and ride a bike, but are still a little unsteady.

You need this class if you can't

• Remove one hand from the handlebar to signal and maintain steadiness on the bike;
• Look back over your shoulder, AND hold a straight line;
• Come to a sudden and efficient stop;
• Make a sharp and evasive turn.

Workshop meets in Glassell Park
3750 N. Verdugo Road
Los Angeles, CA 90065

Space is limited. Call or email to reserve your spot.

Class Limit: 8
Suggested Donation $15
