Free bicycle-friendly training available

Collisions between motorists and bicyclists can often be caused by confusion over who has the right of way, and Bicycle Colorado is working to change that.

Bicycle Colorado is hosting a series of courses to teach motorists how to be a bicycle-friendly driver, and Lakewood has been chosen as a site for one of these courses. This course is for both motorists and bicyclists.

Sign up for this free course: 6 p.m., Oct. 2 at the Lakewood Cultural Center, 470 S. Allison Parkway. Register at BicycleColorado.org/initiatives/bike-school/bicycle-friendly-drivers.

Participants will become a certified bicycle-friendly driver after learning about the following topics:

  • Common crashes between motorists and bicyclists and how to avoid them.
  • Legal and illegal behavior for both motorists and bicyclists.
  • How to navigate on-street bicycle infrastructure.
  • Why sharing the road is the safest option for both motorists and bicyclists.

No matter how we get around, we’re all people, and safety is a shared responsibility. This course can help make Colorado’s urban, rural and mountain roads safer and more courteous for all.
