Smart Cycling Traffic Skills 201

A League of American Bicyclists Course

Traffic Skills 201 is designed for the intermediate to advanced cyclist. The 12 hours of instructions  are based on the material contained in the text, Smart Cycling: Traffic Skills 201. The course is divided into these two days:

Day 1:  deals with mechanical issues, i.e. all things pertaining to the brakes, derailleur, chain, bearings and wheels. The class will be using the repair stands at the bike shop so you may be dealing with a little grease.
