Urban Cycling Workshop held on May 8

On May 8th, community members gathered at the Richcraft Rec Complex to take part in a workshop on cycling in the city.  The presentation by Jen Stelzer of Envirocentre covered a variety of topics, including:

  • basic bike safety equipment and hand signals
  • proper lane positioning
  • different options for making a left turn
  • how to use bike boxes and crossrides
  • how to pass a line of parked cars
  • how to ride safely around large vehicles like buses and trucks

Participants also asked plenty of their own questions, and had a chance to pick up some free maps and safe cycling handbooks.  Our thanks to Jen for hosting this workshop.
