I know its a little weird But….there’s meaning behind the name.
Safe Bicycle Riding comes from mastering three separate and distinct skill sets.
The first skill set is: BALANCING AND PEDALING
It’s the very first thing we teach – GET RID of the TRAINING WHEELS and JUST PEDAL!
The second skill set is: BICYCLE MECHANICS (STARTING, STOPPING, AND TURNING)
The third skill set is: ROAD, TRAIL AND SAFETY ETIQUETTE
Pennsylvania State law considers bicycles to be vehicles and provides that every person riding a pedalcycle upon a roadway shall be granted all of the rights and responsibilities applicable to a driver of a vehicle, with certain exceptions discussed below.
If you ride in violation of the traffic laws, you greatly increase your risk of a crash and will likely be found at fault in the event of an accident.
