Once again the Hawaii Bicycle League is offering commuter cycling classes around Honolulu. Below is a press release published by HBL.
“What Does Your Commute Look Like? Learn to Commute by Bike With the Hawaii Bicycling League’s Free Commuter Cycling WorkshopFunded by a grant from the Department of Transportation, The Hawaii Bicycling League’s free Commuter Cycling 101 workshop aims to get people out of their cars and onto bikes in an effort to make Oahu a cleaner, greener, place to live. The workshop is 2 hours long, and teaches people how to safely navigate traffic by bike. 30 minutes of the workshop are spent going over safety tips, such as how to take the lane, make left turns, and avoid common crashes. The rest of the class offers actual road riding experience.Classes are taught by instructors certified by the League of American Bicyclists, and will be held every weekend during the months of January through May, at UH Manoa, Kapiolani Community College, Eki Cyclery, Leeward Community College, and other locations around the island. Classes are capped at 15 students, and each student will receive gift certificates, water bottles, patch kits, and other freebies from our sponsoring bike shops: BIKE FACTORY, The Bike Shop, Eki Cyclery, Island Triathalon & Bike, McCully Bicycle and Sporting Goods, in addition to safety materials printed by the Hawaii Bicycling League.Register for classes and view the full schedule at hbl.org/commutercycling101. The first students to register receive the most valuable gift certificates, though everyone that attends walks away with something. Though the class is held primarily at college campuses, it’s open to all demographics ages 16 and up.”
