Has anyone considered the value of doing training classes for proper skills for riding in traffic?
Admittedly, even the amateur recreational rider believes he/she has it altogether. But if we all participated in some formal training and also had our networks of other riders going through a similar training agenda - a couple half days with skills assessment and classroom training; would we all not become more responsible riders.
Looking forward to hearing some opinions on this.
I come from a background as an educator and also know of some very good training sessions available from the League of American Bicyclists. So, yes, I do have an existing predisposition to an answer to my question. I am interested in seeing how much pro and con I hear back from this posting.
