WBWC is partnering with Ann Arbor Rec and Ed to offer cycling skills clinics this summer for middle school age kids. The clinics are designed to introduce tweens to the skills they will need to bike safely on the road to and from school or around town. The clinics (each session is identical) will be offered three times this summer. Parents are welcome to observe. Many thanks to LouKa Tactical Training, Ann Arbor Rec and Ed, AABTS and Wheels in Motion for their support and donations to make this class possible. Full class description below.

Grade 5-8. Do you want more freedom to bike around town, to school, or to friend's houses? Need help convincing your parents? You will practice proper riding in bike lanes and roads, risks, signals, and the importance of understanding safety and risks. Bring your bike and be prepared to ride. Helmets are required, one will be provided if you need one. Parents:Your kids need to learn the rules of the road, as well as basic biking skills, in order to safely navigate their routes. Your independent biker will learn the fundamentals of what he/she needs to know to ride safely. Free bike inspection courtesy of Wheels in Motion and helmet safety check courtesy of AABTS.
