There are still a few openings in my first 2008 League of American Bicyclists Road-1 cycling skills course in Arlington. This nine-hour course (listed as “Cycling with Confidence”) significantly benefits *all* bicyclists and will meet on three consecutive Mondays (April 14, 21, and 28) at the Arlington Career Center (816 S Walter Reed Dr) from 6:30-9:30 PM.
Taking Road-1 will make you safer, faster, and much more comfortable in traffic and provides a solid foundation for future learning and development by all bicyclists. About half of the instruction is on-bike, and–contrary to the published course description–a sound bike and helmet are needed at all three class sessions because we typically ride during the first two hours of each session.

The registration fee is discounted for both Arlington residents and seniors (55+).
