Traffic Safety Skills 101 - Ride Leader Seminar
at Mikes Bike Shop in Palatine
On April 3, 2016, a class was offered to everyone over 14 wishing to improve their bike handling skills. This was a great way to help refine and refresh attendees cycling skills; encourage riding a bike confidently and safely for transportation, for fitness and recreation, in traffic and on trails. Lessons on how to be visible and predictable, to ride between and through intersections, to ride in groups, and to avoid crashes were also discussed as well a list of bicycle safety checks. Many existing and new Bike Palatine Club Ride Leaders attended making for more Ride Leaders. Pictured here at the Rotary Club of Palatine sign.

In response to the kind offer from Village Manager Reid Ottesen to develop some Public Service Announcements (PSAs) using the village’s videography staff, task force members met with Sam Trakas to discuss potential topics. View a short public service video aired at the Dist 15 elementary schools promoting International Walk and Bike to School Day. The video is intended as a last-minute promotion/reminder to students to participate! Link to the village’s video library:
