Great news, Richardson cyclists! The League of American Bicyclists and Bike DFW will be hosting a Traffic Skills 101 course right here in Richardson on September 30, 2012. For those of you not familiar with the course, it gives cyclists the confidence they need to ride safely and legally in traffic or on the trail. Through TS101, students learn how to conduct bicycle safety checks, fix a flat, on-bike skills and crash avoidance techniques. We recommended this class for adults and children above age fourteen. 

Even if you think you are an experienced cyclist, this course may be for you. There is always something new that you will discover about cycling safety, skills and handling with the TS 101 course. Or, if you are like me, the course may make you aware of some of the bad riding habits you might have picked up over the years. If anything, the course also serves as a great refresher of stuff you may already know. It’s well worth the time if you enjoy cycling.

Here is where you’ll find this information on the Richardson TS101 class.
