Both drivers and bicyclists have a responsibility to share the road, and Louisville Metro’s Bike Louisville program and the non-profit group Bicycling for Louisville are offering free classes to teach basic traffic skills. One program will teach adults how to navigate roads safely by bicycle; the other will help both drivers and motorist to operate safely around each other.

Classes will be held across the city this spring. Registration is not required, but classes will have a size limit.  Visit the Bicycling for Louisville website for the latest list of classes with locations and times.

Look for Bicycling Safely and Sharing the Road presentations at Bon Air, Crescent Hill, Fern Creek, Middletown, Portland, and Shawnee Branch Libraries in May and June.

Bike Louisville, a Louisville Metro government program, works to make Louisville Metro a bicycle-friendly community through engineering, education, enforcement, encouragement, and evaluation.

Bicycling for Louisville is a charitable civic organization making bicycling in greater Louisville safer, more enjoyable, and more popular, through education, advocacy, technical advising, and research. For more information and a complete schedule of classes, visit:
