Learn safe riding at Tropical Park

David Henderson, the bike-pedestrian coordinator for Miami-Dade County, will teach Traffic Skills 101 on Sunday, June 27, at Tropical Park. He's certified by the League of American Bicyclists to teach this curriculum, so you know you'll get the straight dope about how to cope on the road while having a fun ride. To register, write directly to davidh@miamidade.gov.

This day-long class, by the way, is required for anyone trying to get into the League's course for becoming a certified instructor. So if you're a physical education teacher, recreation leader or just a safety-minded bike enthusiast, this is something you need to do. Thanks to Kathryn Moore at the South Florida Bicycle Coalition for setting this up!
