I received an email from which the following excepts are taken:
On Friday May 1st and Saturday May 2nd, Troy Bike Rescue is offering the League of American Bicyclists certified Smart Cycling Class. The two day class, which will meet from 6pm to 9pm Friday and 10am to 4pm Saturday in the Enable Labs offices, located on the 4th floor of the TRIP Building at 415 River St. in Troy, will cover a variety of topics including cycling in an urban environment, vehicle and traffic law as it relates to cycling, bicycle maintenance, as well as cyclist rights and responsibilities. The Friday portion of the class will be primarily classroom instruction, while the Saturday portion will mostly be practical, riding instruction. The purpose of the class is to help new and experienced cyclists alike become more confident while riding their bikes on the streets of Troy. League Certified Instructor, Claire Nolan, will teach the class. The cost of the class is $40, which will include books and materials. Students are asked to pre-register here. Class size is limited to 12. Troy Bike Rescue is planning on offering additional classes throughout the year.
