Want to learn some useful safety maneuvers? Or perhaps you'd like to become a more able mechanic? Or have bike safety questions answered? Or eat pizza? Then sign up for Enlightened Cycling!
On March 20th Georgia Tech is hosting a special bike safety class we’re calling “enlightened cycling” (with the support of the Atlanta Bicycle Coalition). We call it that because it’s going to focus on safety skills that are highly practical in nature, as well as information that will help make you a safer and more knowledgeable cyclist. In addition, we’re putting a greater focus on maintenance skills than we have in the past, so this is a great opportunity to learn a wide range of new skills that could save you time, money, and hassle in the future (not to mention make you a safer cyclist!).
The course is being held on the Georgia Tech campus in the DM Smith building (on Cherry Street) in room 104. The class will run from 5:30 PM to 9PM, though it’s ok if you’ll be a bit late (we know people have to come over from work, etc!). Make sure to bring your bike and a front and rear light to the class, as well as the $5 class fee (which lets us bring in highly trained mechanics and also to pay for PIZZA).
Sign up for the class at the Bike GT website.
