Confident Cycling for Families Class

Register Here for the Eugene-Springfield Safe Routes to School bi-annual Confident Cycling for Families Class! The class is April 18th, 9am-Noon at Roosevelt Middle School. Families can also join us at 1pm for a Kidical Mass bike ride.

Class attendees will not only learn about basic traffic skills but also learn how to perform a bicycle safety check, how to properly fit a helmet, how to size a bicycle for a child, and how to properly carry things on a bicycle. Information will also be provided about gear and clothing, proper lighting, use of lights, and locking a bike. Half the course will be conducted indoors and the last portion will be held in the parking lot with skills & drills before a final ride on neighborhood streets.

This class is made for parents AND kids so all participants are asked to bring a bicycle and a helmet with them to class. Some reduced cost helmets will be available. Anyone requiring a loaner bicycle for the class is asked to state that in the comments section of the registration form. This class is geared towards children ages 5 – 13 and is free and open to all families but registration is required.  Join the Facebook event and spread the word!
