Free Cycling Savvy Course to be Offered April 25, 2013
Posted by Gwendolyn Childers on April 17, 2013
Another Cycling Savvy course will be offered April 25. The course will take place in the Natural Resources Building, Room 101, 615 E. Peabody, Champaign, IL. There’s no charge for Cycling Savvy, which is open to anyone 15 years and older. No amount of cycling experience is required.
Cycling Savvy will use a guided discussion, photos, illustrations, animations, and videos to educate attendees about safe and effective biking. The course will be divided into three sections: Knowledge of the Law, Knowledge of Bicycling Safety, and Knowledge of Traffic Cycling Problem Solving. Knowledge of the Law will cover the legal rights and responsibilities of cyclists. Knowledge of Bicycling Safety will discuss the causes of bicycle crashes and how to avoid them. This portion will also show that cycling is safe. The third portion, Knowledge of Traffic Cycling Problem Solving, will assess several traffic cycling situations and how a savvy cyclist negotiates such situations.
