Summer Bicycle Safety Classes

Metro's Bike Map

Learn how to safely ride on streets with and without bicycle infrastructure

This summer Metro has been hosting a series of free bicycle traffic safety workshops funded through the Office of Traffic Safety. Metro is working with the LA County Bicycle Coalition, Bike San Gabriel Valley and Multi-Cultural Communities for Mobility in leading the two levels of workshops: a 3-hour beginner’s road rules class (in English and Spanish), and an 8-hour workshop for intermediate cyclists focusing on building traffic skills.

While the series began in June, there are still a few more classes available:

    Bicycle safety is a very important topic indeed. As a co-owner of a bicycle insurance company I have seen lots of claims after cyclist vs car accidents. And they almost ever end well. Thanks for addressing the topic of safety for cyclists.

    Great to see bike safety classes like this being offered. I think we stress safety classes for cars, trucks, motorcycles and just about every other mode of transportation but, we don’t stress this enough for bicyclists. A bike is a vehicle like any other and roadway safety is as much if not more important for bike riders given the potential for accident and injury if safe riding techniques are not employed. Thanks for providing this valuable information about a great resource!
