Do you want to learn valuable bike safety skills and useful tips on how to prepare and train for long bike rides? Join the LA County Bicycle Coalition for a 1-hour virtual session (via Zoom), Bicycling 101: Training for Long Bike Rides, presented by Metro’s Bicycle Education Safety Training (BEST) Program. Learn the following from an experienced cyclist: where to start, how to develop a training plan, what you’ll need for a long ride, and more!

Participants who complete a class feedback survey will also be mailed a FREE pre-loaded TAP card and additional Metro-branded goodies (shipping limited to addresses in LA County).

We encourage attendees to participate from the comfort and safety of your own homes, as we are all doing our part to practice social distancing while staying connected to one another. Once you are registered, we will send you information on how to join the class online.
