Cycling is an efficient form of transport and a healthy pastime and sport.
However, cyclists should be aware of their responsibilities to those they ride with, other motorists and pedestrians.
To learn how to be a safer and more skilled cyclist the Byron Bay Cycle Club is hosting a two-hour Cycling Safety workshop on Saturday August 5 from 1pm at the Cavanbah Sports Centre in Byron.
Jay Carney, who has 44 years’ experience in the cycling industry, will provide advice on how to ride to different types of road conditions, how best to deal with traffic and roadworks, understanding the NSW government road rules for cyclists and how to get out of trouble if you experience a mechanical failure on the road.
This project has received financial assistance from Byron Shire Council and is open to all members of the community.
All participants will receive a Knight Rider rear bike light, although numbers are limited.
