Throughout the year, Ozark Greenways sponsors the League of American Bicyclists' official worshop, Bicycle Traffic Skills, in partnership with League-certified instructor, David Hutchison (who also happens to have beeb Springfield Public Works' Bicycle-Pedestrian Traffic Engineer!). The goal of the workshops is to teach how to properly and safely use Springfield's on-street bike route and trail network for active transportation. Then maybe try out your skills during Bike to Work Week, May 15-19!

The workshop is fun and super informative, covering everything a person would need to know in order to properly bike around Springfield. Topics include route selection, bike safety checks, flat tire repair, riding techniques and rules of the road. Bring a bike and helmet, as half of the class time participants will be on their bikes, and get to try out part of the on-street bike route network! Those who attend the Saturday workshops bike to lunch using the network as well. Check out this KY3 video of David giving a summary of how to bike around Springfield.

To reserve a spot in one of the upcoming workshops, or ask questions about Springfield's growing network of on-street bike routes, contact David Hutchison, Springfield Public Works bicyle-pedestrian traffic engineer, at (417) 496-9879, or david2bike2u@gmail.com
