The Quad Cities Bicycle Club is hosting the American Bicycling Education Association's  Cycling Savvy Course for member and their families.  The event has limited enrollment and you must pre-register for each phase of the course.  This phase of the course is limited to ten members.  If more that 10 individuals register the Board of Directors will determine who will attend.

Train Your Bike: (Parking lot drills/3 hours) Progressive drills designed to increase students’ control of their bikes in various situations. 

·    1:30 PM to 4:30 PM Saturday, August 24 - First Presbyterian Church, Milan



Tour of Your City: (On-road/4 hours) An experiential tour of area roads. The route includes some of the most intimidating road features (intersections, interchanges, merging, etc.) a cyclist might find in his or her travels.

Traveling as a group, the participants stop to survey and discuss each exercise location. After observing the feature, the group discusses traffic dynamics and the best strategy for easy passage. Each cyclist then rides through individually and regroups at a nearby location.
 ·  10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. Sunday, August 25 details to be determined

The classroom and bike handling sessions must be taken as a prerequisite for this session.
