Traffic Skills 101
Presented by the League of American Bicyclists

...Traffic Skills 101 gives cyclists the confidence they need to ride safely and legally in traffic or on the trail. Through TS101, students learn how to conduct bicycle safety checks, fix a flat, on-bike skills and crash avoidance techniques. We recommended this class for adults and children above age fourteen. The curriculum is fast-paced, nine-hours, and prepares cyclists for a full understanding of vehicular cycling.

Dates: Saturday-Sunday, November 10-11, 2012. The same course will be offered a second time, on Saturday-Sunday, November 17-18.

Location: Campbellsville University, Gosser Fine Arts Center, Room 202

Thanks to an educational grant secured by the Campbellsville/Taylor County Trail Town Task Force, students will attend free! Campbellsville University will provide free Saturday lunches in the Dining Hall.

There will be a maximum of 14 participants each weekend. Priority will be given to members of the Trail Town Task Force, employees of the city, county, state, or federal governments, and employees of Campbellsville University. There are plenty of spots left right now, even for folks who are not in those priority groups, so let me know as soon as possible and I’ll reserve a spot for you.

9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, with an hour break for lunch
1 p.m. to 4 p.m. on Sunday (In case of bad weather on Saturday, it may be necessary to begin earlier on Sunday to complete the road-riding experiences, so keep that possibility in mind as you make your Sunday plans.)

League Cycling Instructors (from Louisville): Tom and Jen Armstrong

You will need to bring a bicycle that is in good working order, a helmet, and a 3-ring binder for taking notes. If you have a bike lock, bring it: we will have to secure the bikes outside during times when we are working inside. Bring appropriate clothing for riding outdoors in mid-November (long pants and sleeves, jacket, warm socks and gloves, head covering).

To reserve a spot, reply ASAP to Dr. Jim Moore (, and be sure to tell me which weekend you prefer.
