The East Bay Bicycle Coalition is again offering free bicycle safety classes this winter and spring. Come and learn how to safely drive a bike with a free Traffic Safety class offered by the East Bay Bicycle Coalition. The East Bay Bicycle Coalition is a group promoting bicycling as an everyday means of transportation and recreation.

Day One: Traffic Safety 101 Classroom
The Day 1 Traffic Safety 101 Classroom workshop will consist of a three and a half hour classroom course where participants will learn the basics of safe cycling, riding in traffic, equipment, crash avoidance, and rights and responsibilities. New this session is the first women's only bicycle safety class. This class is designed for adults 14 years and over and no bike is needed for this portion of the class. Day one classes are being offered throughout the Bay Area from February to May including a class in Dublin on April 29th. Please visit www.ebbc.org/safety for full details and to sign up for a class online.

Day Two: Traffic Safety 101 Road Class
The On-Road Instruction class will consist of a six and a half hour on-road course that provides an opportunity to put into practice what was learned in the Classroom workshop. This is an on-your-bike practice session, working in small groups with certified instructors to improve your handling skills, emergency maneuvers, and ability to safely share the road with other traffic. Drinks and snacks are provided. This class does require a bicycle. Day two classes will be held in Oakland on Saturday, March 27th and other locations including Pleasanton to be determined. Please visit www.ebbc.org/safety for full details and to sign up for the class online. The East Bay Bicycle Coalition will be giving out a free front/back bike light for those completing both classes.
