CycleDallas in Orlando? Sometimes you have to head East in order to better ride West!
Hey gang, we're here at CommuteOrlando.com's "CyclingSavvy" Instructors course, learning all the skills, drills, animations, applications, and descriptions to help any and every cyclist in the Dallas figure out how to navigate the roads of our great city. Because Dallas IS a great place to ride your bike!
The CSI course is an intensive, 3-day program, designed to go over all of the 'what-if's' you may have, and how a 'Savvy Cyclist' will drive their bike in that situation. We hosted a course in September, with Waco Moore (already a Cycling Savvy Instructor), and we'll be tripling our numbers after this weekend, when Coach Wharton and Eliott Landrum will be certified. So think of your toughest traffic cycling situations, think about all those perceived obstacles that may be preventing you from riding to more places, more frequently, for more reasons, and keep checking in here for our 2012 Savvy Cycling Schedule for Dallas. We're doing this to give Dallasites the opportunity to learn greater Confidence, Competence, and Communication in traffic. Stay tuned for a summary of this weekend's lessons, and we'll start a great conversation in the comments.
Thanks again, and we are really looking forward to helping you, help yourself, in the upcoming year!
