The Town of Wake Forest will host its first Smart Cycling Class on Saturday, Nov. 10, from 8 a.m.-12:30 p.m. in the ground floor meeting room of Town Hall, 301 S. Brooks St.
Designed for area residents ages 16 and older, the Smart Cycle Class will emphasize safe riding techniques, the proper way to scan for automobiles, intersection safety tips, how to avoid road hazards, such as tree limbs, pot holes and rocks, and more.
The class is $25 per person and $15 for each additional family member (limit four family members per class).
Advance registration is required at www.wakeforestnc.gov/smart-cycling-class.aspx.
On the day of the class participants should bring their own bicycles and helmets. Loaner helmets and bicycles will also be available on a limited basis.
The session will begin with classroom instruction, continue with a variety of bicycle drills in the Town Hall visitor parking lot (located along Brooks Street), and conclude with a group ride that will allow participants to practice their cycling skills.
