This past weekend I guided a group of bike riding people through the League of American Bicyclists Traffic Skills 101 materials. Thursday and Friday evening and Saturday morning was all about talking and doing bikes.
It's a beautiful thing to see the shifts in thinking as we work through the course. The course includes an hour on city roads to demonstrate the concepts put forth in the materials. During that ride someone commented that experiencing road riding isn't nearly as intimidating as it seemed. Beautiful.
Here's our route. We don't mess around too much.
The course evaluations reveal that 75% of the students indicate "yes" when asked "do you plan to bicycle more in the future than you did before taking this course?"
