Claremont Safe Routes To Schools: Safety Training...
Received an email today about a bicycle safety course being offered by the BASE+Birge Engineering Claremont Safe Routes to School Team. The class is geared for adults and is being offered free to Claremont residents on two consecutive Saturday's at the end of January. The program, approved by the League of American Bicyclists, will provide classroom and practical on-the-road training relating to rules of the road and safe riding practices. Classes such as this also help communities raise their bicycle friendliness rating (Claremont currently has a bronze rating). Bicycle friendly communities tend to have higher standards of living and, as we hear more and more, increased levels of bicycling provide increased economic benefits. Click on the flyer for additional information and contacts.
