Taught by New York Bicycling Coalition Instructor, Ken Crandall
According to the National Household Traveling Survey, bicycle commuting has doubled across America since 2009. With more cyclists on the road than ever before, it is important that everyone knows the rules of the road in order to commute safely. On June 22nd, 23rd, and 24th Schneider and Palcsik will partner with the New York Bicycling Coalition (NYBC) to host two courses to help cyclists of all abilities find out how they can commute safely in a variety of conditions.
