This is it! Fall is officially here and that means it’s the last weekend to participate in the free bike safety classes that were offered all summer long through a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety.
For those not familiar with the types of safety classes available, here’s the rundown:
Entry Level Classes (2 hours; In classroom; No bike)
For recreational riders ready to venture beyond their neighborhood.
Intermediate Commuting Classes (3 hours; In classroom & on bike)
Learn the basics of riding safely in the streets and practice in a community group ride.
Traffic Skills 101 Classes (8 hours; In classroom & on bike)
The most comprehensive course that teaches everything you will need to ride safely with traffic. Presented over two days, first in-classroom instruction only, followed by on-bike learning.
Participants will receive a helmet, bicycle light set, and safety manual after completing a course and must be 14 or older to attend. Please note that Traffic Skills 101-B classes are only open to those who have taken TS 101-A. Consider taking the free Traffic Skills 101-B class if you have completed TS 101-A in order to get the full learning experience.

Finally, we want to thank everyone for your enthusiastic participation in making bicycling safer in Los Angeles County!
The free bicycle safety classes are funded by Metro through a $224,000 grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety. Announced during Bike Week L.A., the grant funded more than 150 bicycle safety education classes in the region. An estimated 3,200 county residents of varying urban cycling skills and abilities took advantage of these free classes.
