From the email:

Hello Quincyclists,

I would like to announce that Quincy is co-hosting a League of American Bicyclists’ Smart Cycling Traffic Skills 101 class on April 7 and 8. Please join us!

http://www.massbike.org/ts101quincy
This Traffic Skills 101 Cycling Education Course is a fast-paced, two-day class that provides cyclists with the confidence to ride safely and legally in traffic or on the trail. We will cover the basics of bike maintenance, rules of the road, on-bike skills, and crash avoidance techniques. This class is a prerequisite for becoming a certified League Cycling Instructor from the League of American Bicyclists.

Join us Saturday, April 7, 10a-1pm for an indoor session, and Sunday, April 8, 10am-1pm for an outdoor session on the bike and a written test. Participants MUST take both days to participate.

The League of American Bicyclists’ Smart Cycling program is designed to develop your knowledge and expertise in the craft and science of bicycling — the ability to use a bicycle with confidence and competence for pleasure, utility and sport under various highway, climate, terrain, and traffic conditions.

The bicycling education program was started in 1974, and continues to be the only nationally recognized cycling education program with trained and certified instructors.

Traffic Skills 101 is the foundation of the program. It provides instruction and guidance in the basic principles of vehicular bicycling. Bicyclists have more fun when they ride with skill and confidence. This course combines classroom discussion and parking lot activities with on-road practice of the principles of vehicular bicycling. The instructor for this course is certified by the League of American Bicyclists and has years of experience and training.

If you are interested in becoming a League Certified Instructor this course is a prerequisite. That course will be offered in May.  Please let us know if you are interested!

Keep pedaling,

Irene Lutts
