Learn to Drive your Bike in Decatur


From: Posted by DanMagee 19 hours ago (http://decaturactiveliving.blogspot.com)

Decatur, where they say it's greater, is an excellent place to learn Confident City Cycling with the Atlanta Bicyle Coalition! On Saturday, July 17th, ABS will offer a bike class for those who want to learn to " drive" their bikes. Driving your bike refers to riding on the street safely, predictably, with confident courtesy. This is the perfect introduction to driver education for teens.

Register at : http://www.atlantabike.org/
Saturday, July 17 from 3:30-7:30pm
Cost: $20 ($10 fro ABC members)
Location: Decatur Recreation Center, 231 Sycamore Street, Decatur

It also teaches something more important, and vital to our movement: empathy. Time and time again people tell me, " I never really understood how to interact with cyclists until I started riding a bike in the street." There is no substitute for experience!

So come out to Decatur, bring your teen or anyone else you would like to gain confidence on their bike.
