Training and Safety
July 1 & August 5: Bishop's Bicycles' Introduction to Road Riding
On the first Thursday of each month Bishop's Bicycles holds a Introduction to Road Riding Ride. This session starts at Bishop's Bicycles and then heads to the bike trail to cover basics -- riding in a group, riding in a pace line and using hand signals to communicate with other cyclists. The ride will then travel to neighborhood roads to practice techniques learned on the trail. This ride assumes that the participants understand how to operate their bike. Helmets are required and rear lights are encouraged.
Bishop's also periodically hosts Bicycle Maintenance Clinics, which cover repairing a flat and maintaining your bicycle. Check out their website for details.
July 10: Introduction to Traffic Cycling Skills 101 hosted by the Cincinnati Cycling Club
Join us for an introductory session, Traffic Skills 101, a basic course that every cyclist should take. Both novice and experienced cyclists will be more comfortable and at ease while cycling on the road and in traffic after this course.
Session 1 - FREE, but a $15 reservation deposit is required to reserve your spot. Refunded upon attendance.
Focuses on an introduction to cycling safety and basic traffic law. We will have a classroom discussion followed by on-bike parking lot skills and a short ride on local roads.
Join us on Saturday, July 10 from 9 a.m. - 12 p.m. at the National MS Society, Ohio Valley Chapter office,
