The League of American Bicyclists BikeEd Road I course will be taught by LAB Licensed Certified Instructor, Bill Hoffman on Oct 10 and Oct 16 at the Upper Merion Township Building, 175 West Valley Forge Rd. (SR 23)in King of Prussia. This 10 hour course is perfect for those cyclists who wish to gain a full understanding of how to safely operate a bicycle in a variety of situations. About 1/3 of the course is conducted indoors, 2/3 is outdoors.

Tools and parts will be provided for students to remove and replace a rear wheel, remove and replace tire and tube, patch tube, and adjust brakes and derailleurs, and saddle and handlebar adjustments. Each student must bring a multi-geared, hand-braked bike (even a 3-speed is OK), plus a helmet.

Steering and handling demos, scanning drill and emergency maneuvers practice will be done in a parking lot. All other on-bike activities are on the road.
At the end of the course there is an optional road and written test. Students who take and pass the tests will be awarded LAB
certificates, and if anyone is thinking of going on to Road II someday, or even becoming an LCI, they must take and pass both tests.

The course will be held from 10am to 4pm, with 1 hr lunch period.
Tuition is $61.00. Attendance is limited to 12 students.
