“It’s Time We Truly Share The Road”

This was in my “In” box this morning:

“Cycling Savvy is a truly empowering experience,” wrote Mark Barnett, who participated in last weekend’s St. Louis CyclingSavvy workshop.

“The effective classroom session provides students with the right information and motivation to take on the ‘big roads.’ A classmate and I changed our habits that very evening on our ride back to our homes. And I started thinking and riding differently and more safely on my commute. The accompanying tour was just as great. There are roads I wouldn’t dream of driving because they can be a traffic nightmare, but I will ride them on my bike. I believe everyone who gets around on two wheels and their own power can benefit from the class. It will open your eyes and challenge your assumptions about bicycling.

“It’s time we truly share the road.”

About the author

I'm a native St. Louisan and daily bicycle commuter. I've been a bicycle safety instructor since 2008, but became truly excited about the transformative potential of bicycle education when I learned about CyclingSavvy, started in Florida in June 2010. Had CyclingSavvy been available when I rediscovered bicycling in the 1990s, I would have saved myself years of trial and error!

  • A nicely written piece of positive feedback from one of the participants in your latest CyclingSavvy St. Louis course. And consistent with that of others, including my own experience. Keep up the good work, Karen!
