Bicycle-Friendly Driver Workshop - Alameda

 Registration is closed for this event

This 1-hour class is made possible with funding from the City of Alameda. This is an indoor, classroom-only workshop, so no bike is required in order to participate.

Biking is becoming even more popular for people travelling around in the East Bay, but driver testing and training is not keeping up with today's infrastructure. At this class we will discuss bike safety from a driver perspective, and answer questions you might have about new bikeways. This class is great for beginners and experienced drivers alike.

We'll cover a number of interesting topics, including:

  • Rules and responsibilities for bike riders
    • Where to ride
    • Making turns
    • Hand signals
    • Road position
  • Turn conflicts
    • Visibility and predictability
    • Avoiding right turn conflicts
    • Avoiding left turn conflicts
  • Types of bikeways
    • Painted, protected, and shared
    • Use and meaning of green paint
    • Use and meaning of bike boxes
    • Parking and loading
  • Passing bike riders
    • Passing distance: 3 foot law
    • Passing location: Hills, curves, and intersections
  • Managing speed
    • Perception-reaction time
    • Speed data
    • Driving for conditions
