Saturday, September 10thfrom 11:00 AM – 1:00 PM, join us at the Coos History Museum for a “Smart Cycling Workshop” put on by Kyle Motley from Front Street Community Bike Works. This program is free, but donations to Front Street Community Bike Works are encouraged and appreciated.
Workshop Instructor: Kyle is an ecologist, writer, bike enthusiast and the program manager of FSCBW. His work at the bike shop includes general management, grant administration, fiscal oversight and repair/service work. Beyond work, Kyle is an avid mountain biker and bike tourer who recently completed an Oregon to Virginia Transamerica ride.
Kyle is a certified League Cycling Instructor (LCI) through the League of American Bicyclists (LAB). The LCI training provided by the LAB consists of online course work, on-bike training and a 24 hour seminar that certifies individuals as instructors to teach Smart Cycling curriculum. The certification combines Traffic Skills 101, Traffic Skills 201, Group Riding and Commuting curricula into a single smart cycling manual to help people feel more secure about riding and ensure that cyclists know how to ride safely and legally.
Workshop Description: The Smart Cycling Workshop is being offered free of charge for local Coos county children ages 8-14 and their families to learn the basics of this important training. Kyle will provide a 2-hour workshop about how to ride your bicycle safely and legally, especially on our local streets. This activity will include 30 minutes of instruction and 1.5 hours of on-the-bike training in a secure section of the Coos History Museum parking lot. Free helmets will be available, but we encourage children to bring their own bicycles if possible. So bring your children down for a great opportunity for formal training on how to be bike and street safe!
