Safety Training Workshop

Wednesday, September 22nd, 2010

Could you use some clarification on the rules of the road for cyclists? Where exactly are you supposed to wait to turn left, anyways? How can you avoid being doored and sideswiped?

Get these questions and more answered during a 50 minute Road Riding Fundamentals presentation offered through UBC’s Bike Co-op! Please RSVP to as space is limited.

The cost is free for members.
$15 for non-members and includes a year long membership to the bike co-op.
