The Bicycle Friendly Driver program is an hour interactive class, aimed at educating all drivers on the best and safest ways to share the road with people on bicycles. Developed by FC Bikes in collaboration with Bike Fort Collins. This course answers questions like:
- How do most crashes involving motor vehicles and bicyclists occur?
- What is the safest way to make a right-hand turn when bike lanes and/or bicyclists are present?
- Why do bicyclists ride in the middle of the road?
- Attendance is open to everyone, no need to RSVP.
Please make plans to attend one of the two sessions offered by KU Sustainability.
The class will be presented twice.
