After a recent Chicago PD crackdown on bicyclists (turns out two-wheelers are supposed to stop for red lights too), now might be the time to brush up on cycling safety.
The city’s Bicycling Ambassadors are bringing their act to Sulzer Library (4255 N. Lincoln) on Saturday, June 11, at 11 a.m. in the Auditorium. The Ambassadors, a team of safety and education experts, will talk about equipment basics, safety lanes and how to handle emergencies, among other topics.
The Ambassadors’ efforts to increase the number of trips Chicagoans make by bike are part of the city’s Bike 2015 Plan. If you can’t make the hour-long talk on Saturday, the Ambassadors have a number of helpful videos on their website.
