"Safe cycling does not arise out of fear of traffic, but from understanding where the risks lie and taking active steps to avoid them." - Lance Jacobs, Virtuous Bicycle

Do you know all you need to know to safely ride a bike with traffic? Do you feel you know enough to teach your children how to ride cautiously and conspicuously while on their own? When you drive your car, are you confident on how to share the road with people on bikes?

Bicyclists who answer "NO" to any of these questions are excellent candidates for a Traffic Skills 101 workshop.

This 9-hour workshop will be held over three consecutive Wednesday evenings (6pm to 9pm) in Schenectady at the Edison Tech Center on June 4, 11, and 18th.


The Capital District Transportation Committee and New York Bicycling Coalition are cosponsoring Traffic Skills 101, a bicycling course to give people the confidence to ride safely and legally in traffic or on the trail.

Participants will learn how to conduct bicycle safety checks, basic maintenance, on-bike skills and crash avoidance techniques. The course is recommended for adults and children over the age of 14.

The course also provides an excellent introduction to bicycle safety issues for advocates and others involved in bicycling education and encouragement programs.

All courses involve a classroom component and an outdoor component, participants are encouraged to dress for the weather.

The cost to register is $5 per person (collected at the workshop, please bring cash or check made to NYBC). A bicycle and helmet are required to participate.
