A shortened version of the "Street Cycling Skills" class, learn the basics of riding your bike safely and confidently with traffic on city and residential streets.  The "Bicycling on the Road: Need to Know" class is a 3-hour course that Los Angeles County Bicycle Coalition and Metro is offering free to the public for the summer of 2013. Funding for this program was provided by a grant from the Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

The class is taught by League Cycling Instructors (LCIs) certified by the League of American Bicyclists. The 3-hour course includes classroom instruction, a bicycle handling practice session, and on-road riding. Each class participant will receive a free helmet, front & rear lights, and educational materials.

Each student must bring:

1. A bicycle in good working condition (please take your bike to a local shop or co-op if you are unsure about the condition of your bicycle)

2. Pen and paper for taking notes.

3. Snacks and water.
