MAY 26 – EMPLOYEE: On-Street Bike Skills, 1pm, Lakeside Parking Lot & Bike Path
Are you comfortable on your bike, but not so much with traffic? Local Motion’s 90 minute “On-Street Bike Skills” workshop helps you build your skills and confidence for riding on the street! We start with a ten-minute pre-ride review of the essential principles of safe riding, along with a quick refresher on proper helmet fit and a 60-second mechanical check. Then we saddle up and head out on the street for a narrated ride with periodic pull-offs to discuss conditions encountered and how best to respond to them.
Over the course of the ride, participants learn about making safe turns, lane positioning, hazard avoidance, communicating with drivers, and more. All participants must bring their bike and helmet. Bikes must be in good working order. We will be doing a $50 gift card raffle for all participants.
If you need a bike, sign up to use one of the ChampRides Bikeshare bikes at champlain.edu/bike/champrides or get in touch with Nic Anderson, who will make sure you get sorted.
