Bike Skills 101

The Coeur d'Alene Pedestrian and Bicycle Advisory Committee is currently working on getting a couple members licensed to teach bike safety classes through the League of American Bicyclists. Until then, there is this opportunity to learn some road skills through this free online course. It is no replacement for a hands-on experience but you'll likely learn a few things that could improve your safety on the road.

From the Leaugue's website:
The City of Houston is proud to be a partner with the League of American Bicyclists (LAB) in the development of this online course to represent the classroom portion of the League's Traffic Skills 101 course. The BikeEd program is designed to develop the craft and science of bicycling, the ability to use a bicycle with confidence and competence for pleasure, utility and sport under various roadway, climate and traffic conditions.
With this convenient on-line course, we hope that you will find valuable tools to provide you with knowledge and confidence to ride safely and in a commendable manner. By completing the online portion of Traffic Skills 101, you are on your way towards becoming a bicycle ambassador. Your example will demonstrate to your co-workers and to our residents your bicycling initiative. We hope that your positive example and endeavor motivates Houstonians to recognize the value of bicycling and they consider riding themselves.
