Bicycle safety classes

Submitted By Robert Prinz

The East Bay Bicycle Coalition (EBBC) is a local non-profit organization which represents the interests of cyclists throughout Alameda and Contra Costa counties. EBBC's bike safety program is one of the largest and best-developed in the country; there will be more safety classes and bike advocacy efforts in the East Bay, starting this year, to better represent each community's interests and help support existing sustainable transportation groups.

The following free classes are scheduled for April 2012 for personal education and to prepare for May 2012 Bike to Work Month events:

Attend the one-hour Bike Commuter Safety Workshop on April 7 at Cal State University East Bay, Hayward, and learn the rules of the road, how to outfit your bike, how to take a bike on transit and how to be safe while having fun. Ages 14+, no bike required. This class will be repeated at Cal State University East Bay, Hayward, on April 16, 2012 as the Lunchtime Bike Safety Workshop.

A Family Bicycling Workshop on April 21 in Fremont will feature bike safety instructors for a day of fun games, safety drills, skills building and a neighborhood ride! This workshop is for children who are able to ride a bike and are ready to ride on the roadways with their parents. Parents and kids must attend together and should bring their own bikes. Each child receives a free red blinky light for participating in this 2.5-hour event!

Bicycle Traffic Skills 101 Classroom Workshop is a free, 3.5-hour interactive classroom course that teaches the basics of safe cycling, riding in traffic, equipment, crash avoidance and rights and responsibilities. Ages 14+, no bike needed. Scheduled for April 29 in Fremont.
