Teen cycling course dates set for June

“Smart Cycling for Teens” is a pilot program for youth bicyclists offered by the Fargo Police Department in June, for Fargo teens going into grades 9-12.  There is no charge for participation. Class size is limited.

Smart Cycling for Teens gives youth bicyclists the confidence they need to ride safely and legally in traffic or on the trail.  The course covers bicycle safety checks, fixing a flat, on-bike skills and crash avoidance techniques and includes a student manual.

This fast-paced, ten-hour course prepares cyclists for a full understanding of vehicular cycling.  Parental consent forms/liability waivers are required prior to participation. Students must supply their own bicycle in safe working condition and a bike helmet.

Session 1 – June 13-17 (M-F) 1pm-3pm; South HS Auto Shop
Session 2 – June 20-24 (M-F) 1pm-3pm; South HS Auto Shop

The Smart Cycing course curriculum is from the League of American Bicyclists “Traffic Skills 101″ bicycle safety education course, and is being taught by League Cycling Instructor  Chris Potter, who is also the Fargo South School Resource Officer and South HS Bike Club Advisor.
