    I just took this same class here at Verizon in Richardson. One of the instructors works in the building and he taught us the book sessions and on bike sessions at lunch over a two week period. I highly recommend it, even though I have been an active rider for 20 years and commuter for 6 months, I thought at first I would not learn anything new but was very surprised at how much the class made me think and I for sure had never seen any of the emergency maneuvers they teach in the on bike training.
