Bicycle Safety in the Streets

Revolutions will be hosting a Bicycle Safety Class this Saturday, November 21, 2009 from 10:00am-12:00pm.  Spend a couple hours with fellow bike enthusiasts as they discuss general safety guidelines, specific regulations regarding riding bicycles in Memphis, and overall strategies for getting from point a to point B as safe as possible.  Feel free to bring your questions. 

Date: Saturday, November 21 (10:00am-12:00pm)

Info: Should I ride with traffic or against it? Should I ride on the sidewalk? Can I take a left hand turn in traffic on my bike? Is it even legal to ride in the road? How can I safely navigate Memphis’ city streets?  Answers to all these questions and basic street safety procedures will be covered in this workshop.

The class will be free and open to the public.  No reservation is necessary.  Hope to see you there!
