Family Biking Day- Saturday
Confident Cycling for Families Classes
Saturday April 21, 9am-11:30
Location: Roosevelt Middle School
Class attendees will not only learn about basic traffic skills but also learn how to perform a bicycle safety check, how to properly fit a helmet, how to size a bicycle for a child, and how to properly carry things on a bicycle. Information will also be provided about gear and clothing, proper lighting, use of lights, and locking a bike. Half the course will be conducted indoors and the last
portion will be held in the parking lot with skills & drills before a final ride on neighborhood streets.
This class is made for parents AND kids so all participants are asked to bring a bicycle and a
helmet with them to class. Some reduced cost helmets will be available. Anyone requiring a
loaner bicycle for the class is asked to state that in the comments section of the registration form.
This class is geared towards children ages 5 – 13 and is free and open to all families but
registration is required.
