9:45 AM PDT on September 2, 2008

Designed for the person that is new to riding in
city traffic, this is the perfect workshop to get you, or someone you
love, out there bicycling on city streets both safely and confidently.
During the first part of the workshop, we will help you develop a
thorough understanding of the basic principles of bicycle and traffic
safety. For the second part of the workshop, you’ll need your bike,
because we’ll be hittin’ the road for an easy bike ride that will put
what you just learned into practice. This workshop requires that you
are already confident with your bike handling abilities.

* Start your bike with confidence and ease.
* Balance and steer your bike
* Bring your bike to a smooth and controlled stop.
* Use your gears effectively
* Remove one hand from your handlebar to signal without veering.
* Look over your shoulder without veering.
