Have you ever wondered about the proper way to make a left turn while riding your bicycle? Do you know how to properly fit a bicycle helmet to your head? You can learn the answers to these and other questions about safe bicycle principles by attending Bicycle Friendly Farmington’s upcoming Bicycle Safety Course.
Bicycle Friendly Farmington (BFF) is hosting a Bicycle Safety Course on Thursday, October 16, 2014. The class is free and open to bicyclists of all ages and experience levels.
The Bicycle Safety Course will be held from 7:00 – 9:00 pm in the Yates Room at the Farmington Police Department, 319 New Britain Ave, Unionville, CT 06085. Our instructors will be Officer Jeff Glaude and Chief Paul Melanson of the Farmington Police Department.
The class will cover topics such as the rules of the road as they pertain to motorists and cyclists; use of appropriate safety gear; group road riding guidelines; signaling turns; avoiding crashes; trail, sidewalk, and street riding; conducting bicycle safety checks; basic maintenance; and essential bike handling skills. This is a classroom session — no actual riding is part of the class.
No registration is required for this free class, although you may RSVP on Facebook.
