Bicycle Safety and Education

Educating bicyclists and motorists is important to ensuring a bicycle friendly community.

Bicycle Friendly Farmington works to ensure that everyone┬áin our communities understands safe bicycling practices. Whether you’re on the trail or on the road, it’s important for bicyclists of all ages to know the basics of bicycle safety.

As part of this effort, we periodically conduct classes through Farmington Continuing Education on bicycle maintenance, repair, safety, and group riding.

We also conduct “pop-up bicycle safety clinics” at trailheads in the Farmington Valley to help bicyclists make sure that their bikes and helmets are working and fitting properly.

All of our group rides start with an “ABC Quick Check” routine to make sure riders’ bicycles are ready to ride.

Our bicycle safety rodeo is aimed at kids from elementary through high school ages, through scouting organizations, after-school programs, and other groups, and teaches bicycle safety in a fun series of skill tests. [Click here to learn more about working with BFF on a bicycle rodeo for your group.]
