'Basic Bicycling Skills' class pedals through



The Massachusetts Bicycle Coalition is presenting "Basic Bicycling Skills," a two-part cycling skills class, in Newburyport this month. It is aimed at adults who want to get back into bicycling, improve cycling skills, learn to ride more effectively and safely in traffic or participate in a large-scale benefit ride.



The classroom session takes place Thursday, Sept. 13, from 6:30 to 9 p.m., and will cover bike safety principles, bicycling laws, guidelines for riding in traffic and more. Then, a ride is planned for Saturday, Sept. 15, from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., and will include guided instruction with simple practice drills in a parking lot, easy-paced riding on local roadways for short distances, and group discussion breaks along the way. An instructor certified by the League of American Bicyclists will lead the class.



Registration is required. Visit http://www.massbike.org/catalog/product_info.php?cPath=28&products;_id=54 or call MassBike at 617-542-2453.
