Did you know?

63% of Florida adult cycling hospitalizations do NOT involve a motor vehicle. Many are crashes with fixed objects, pavement hazards, pedestrians, animals or other cyclists, and could be avoided with better bike-handling skills. This class will benefit anyone who rides a bike, whether they ride in the neighborhood, on our trails or on busy roads.
