as our thoughts turn to spring...

Many folks are getting out on their bikes again as the weather gets more pleasant.  For some, this means more conflicts.  Did you know that riding on the sidewalk is illegal if you're over 12 years old?  Does riding in traffic make you nervous?  Taking a safe cycling or traffic skills class can give you the tools you need to be safer in traffic and ride with more confidence.

If you ride at night, make sure to use lights so that drivers and pedestrians can see you.  It's the law.  Check out this page for more bike-related videos: secure locking tips, safer riding in traffic and other useful information.
