Toned legs and lungs; beautiful scenery; a healthier you. If these aren?t reason enough to become a bike commuter, how about the high price of gas, air quality alerts, and limits to our natural resources? In this class, we'll look at perceptions that surround bike commuting (both good and bad), then get down to practicalities: commute clothing; making your bike commute friendly; carrying your stuff; roads, routes, and paths; rules of the road/safety; storing/parking your bike; and making yourself presentable when you arrive. We'll also cover emergency kits and repairs, conflicts with drivers and other road users, and first aid for common bike injuries. We're lucky: Salt Lake City has a fabulous network of bike lanes and an active bike advocacy group. Join the growing crowd of bike commuters!
