The Wisconsin Department of Transportation is providing a free Teaching Safe Bicycling course in several cities around the state, including Stevens Point. These are “train the trainer” style courses.
I learned about this course from a Bicycle Federation of Wisconsin blog post. According to the BFW post, “Those who complete the class will be able to more effectively teach bicycle safety to adults and children at bike rodeos, schools, after school programs, YMCA’s, workplaces, etc.”
The version offered in Stevens Point will take place on May 19 and is scheduled to run from 8 AM to 4:30 PM. Part of the afternoon portion will include a bicycle ride, which is one of the learning activities.
For more information, read the BFW post and check out the WI DOT online brochure. Although the class is free, space is limited and registration is required.
I do not know if there are still openings available, but the brochure has a WI DOT contact person you can e-mail to find out. The brochure indicates that registration is required one week in advance, meaning you probably need to register either today or tomorrow. So act now if you want to take advantage of this course.
