Space still available in "Bike Driver's Ed" workshop

The below is forwarded here on WalkBikeJersey from Rich Conroy at Bike New York.  It is my understanding that those wishing to take this workshop do not need to be LCI's but will likely need to be teachers.  Interested persons should ask Rich directly.

Bike New York will be offering their Bike Driver's Ed training workshop at the upcoming NJAHPERD conference in Long Branch, NJ on February 16th.  The Bike Driver's Ed training equips Educators to implement a multi-session bicycle skills program for elementary, pre-teen, and teen cyclists, such as for use in PE classes, after-school programs, or summer camps. Educators will be prepared to teach students how to drive their bicycles as vehicles on the road. Participants gain an understanding of vehicular traffic rules and cyclists' responsibilities, proper bike and helmet fit, use of gears and brakes, essential bike handling skills, and basic repair and maintenance.

There is still some space available for this training.  If you or anyone you know may be interested, please call or email Rich Conroy
