Biking 101: Cycling Law Seminar

Learn what the laws are for cyclists; how you legally and appropriately ride on public roads; what the rules are for turning, stopping, passing; your rights and obligations; and much more.

These classes are designed for workplace and advocacy groups, cycling teams and organizations, bike shops, and more.  Megan teaches the laws and municipal codes, uses case examples and photos to show you how to ride legally, safely, and skillfully.  She also raises current issues and concerns -like riding with cameras, reporting close calls, what kinds of insurance coverages cyclists should carry, and more.  They last 60-90 minutes depending on Q&A.

You will leave feeling more informed, and more secure in your rights and obligations as a cyclist.

These seminars are designed for:

  • cyclists of all levels, who want to learn more about the laws applicable to cyclists, motorists and shared road use
  • new/inexperienced cyclists, who want to learn the actual “HOW TOs” of riding on public roads, so they can confidently and safely commute to work or simply expand their riding options by moving away from bike paths to ride more frequently on roads
  • cyclists of all levels who wish to lead by example, who want to demonstrate a command of the laws and conduct of a safe rider, and who will advocate to other cyclists and motorists in a positive, educational, amicable manner
  • bike shop employees and others who work in the cycling industry - so they can inform and educate their customers on the laws and standards applicable to cyclists
