Time to schedule Bike classes
We're offering three Bike Month prep classes this year:
* Bicycle Basics - a 1 hour class for cyclists, novice or experienced, which covers bicycle types, rules of the road and basic information for a safe and enjoyable bicycle ride.
* Peaceful Coexistence - a 1 hour class for drivers and cyclists which reviews rules of the road for coexisting.
*LimeBike Demo - a 1 hour class which covers basic cycling safety, how LimeBike works with test rides for all participants.
The classes are offered to any employer on the 50 Corridor. They are free, however, the employer must provide a meeting room with Power Point capabilities and guarantee a minimum of 10 participants.
All classes are taught by League Cycling Instructors, certified by the League of American Bicyclists with more than 60 hours of training.
Cycle Chic 2.0 - 10th and 17th
Due to weather and illness, we have rescheduled "Changing Tires", the first installment of our Cycle Chic classes for women.
On March 10, we will be coving both Changing Tires and Gears are Good, with a two hours class which will include a bike ride and lunch.
March 17 will be our "Attire and Accessories" session with Folsom Bike's Ride Like A Girl Boutique.
All classes will begin at the Pedal Stop, located across from the Historic Folsom Light Rail Station. Classes will begin at 10 a.m.
Bicycles and helmets will be available for any participant who needs them at no charge.
There is no charge for participating but registration is required.
Planning for Cycle Chic 2.0
... tell us what you want!
Thanks to everyone who participated in our recent Cycle Chic series! We're back at the drawing board, contemplating a new series for women cyclists next Spring. If you are a woman cyclist, whether you participated in the October series or not, beginner or pro, we want your input! We'd appreciate your thoughts by completing the below survey.
Lost in Paradise? Survey Results on Parkway Signage
In August, we asked your opinions on signage on and around the American River Parkway. The TMA, in partnership with State Parks, County Regional Parks,the City of Rancho Cordova and the City of Folsom, is exploring the value of added way-finding signage to, from and along the Parkway.
96 people weighed in on how to make the Parkway safer, easier to use and more enjoyable. And, while the survey's focus was on infrastructure, the participants broaden the focus with comments on enforcement, illegal camping, and parkway users not respecting the signs that are already in place.
Highlights of the survey results:
65% said more signage along the Parkway would be helpful
37% said wayfinding signage would make the parkway safer
16% want more information at intersections
28% want more information on trail conditions and closures
26% use Google Maps to determine their Parkway ride
