SV Bike Coalition hosts bike safety classes
The Silicon Valley Bicycle Coalition has scheduled an Intro to Urban Bicycling Workshop 5:30-6:30 p.m. Tuesday at The Village at San Antonio Center, Suite 21, in Mountain View.
The class is part of training offered in Bay Area communities that have added Bay Area BikeShare stations.
Under Bay Area BikeShare, bikes are available at locked BikeShare stations to individuals who sign up online. Stations are popping up around the Bay Area and are already in five Mountain View locations, including two within a block of The Village – at the San Antonio Caltrain station and at Showers Avenue and Latham Street.
“We’re having these free classes in Mountain View and other communities because as more and more people choose the bicycle for everyday transportation, it’s important that they have the skills to keep themselves and other users of the road safe,” said Corinne Winter, executive director of the Silicon Valley Bicycle Coalition, which is implementing the classes on behalf of Bay Area BikeShare.
Space is limited.
