Metro to hold summer workshops on bicycle safety*

The Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (Metro) and BikeSGV will offer free adult biking courses this summer in an effort to educate San Gabriel Valley and Southern California residents on biking rules and safety. Starting June 22, Metro and bicycle advocacy groups in the Los Angeles area will conduct 30 workshops in 30 communities, including Monterey Park, South Pasadena, El Monte, Rosemead, and San Gabriel. 

The outreach campaign is not just for beginner bikers but for everyone on the road, according to BikeSGV board member and Program Director Javier Hernandez. “This campaign is aimed not only at educating bicyclists but motorists as well,” Hernandez said. “In driving schools, no one is really educated on how to deal with bicyclists.”

Each course will run for three hours: one hour to go over rules for bicyclists in California, biking in Los Angeles, and types of bike infrastructure already in place; one hour of parking lot practice; and a one-hour bike ride. Participants must bring a bike to participate and will receive a free helmet, lights, bike maps, and more.

Visit LAist for a schedule of planned classes and BikeSGV for more information.

*Corrected 06.21.13: An earlier version of this story incorrectly stated that Javier Hernandez is the founder of BikeSGV. We apologize for the error.
