Start the New Year Off Right and Commute by Bike: Register for Commuter Cycling 101
Everything is falling into place, and our free Commuter Cycling 101 workshop is now open for registration. Head over to hbl.org/commutercycling101 and make it happen.
Funded by a grant from the Department of Transportation, The Hawaii Bicycling League's free Commuter Cycling 101 workshop aims to get people out of their cars and onto bikes in an effort to make Oahu a cleaner, greener place to live. The workshop is 2 hours long, and teaches people how to safely navigate traffic by bike. Thirty minutes of the workshop are spent going over safety tips, such as how to take the lane, make left turns, and avoid common crashes. The rest of the class offers actual road riding experience.
Classes are taught by instructors certified by the League of American Bicyclists, and will be held every weekend during the months of January through May, at UH Manoa, Kapiolani Community College, Eki Cyclery, Leeward Community College, and other locations around the island. Classes are capped at 15 students, and each student will receive a gift certificate, water bottle, or patch kit from our sponsoring bike shops: BIKE FACTORY, The Bike Shop, Eki Cyclery, Island Triathlon & Bike, and McCully Bicycle and Sporting Goods, in addition to safety materials printed by the Hawaii Bicycling League.
Register for classes and view the full schedule at hbl.org/commutercycling101.The first students to register receive the most valuable gift certificates ($15 to the first person that registers for each class, $10 to the next 5 people), though everyone that attends walks away with something. We're even offering an additional $10 gift certificate to anyone that refers a friend. Though the class is held primarily at college campuses, it's open to everyone ages 16 and up. The class is aimed at beginners, though seasoned riders, rusty riders, and really anyone with a bike is welcome to join. The only requirements are a bike and a helmet.
