The BCI Board of Directors highly recommends that every member complete a bicycle safety and traffic skills class and become part of our Circle of Safety.

We encourage all Circle of Safety members to wear their wristbands on club rides, remember to use their traffic skills at all times and set a good example for others. 
We appreciate the time and effort BCI members have put in to become safer and more responsible bicycle riders. Circle of Safety members are listed below. Look for them next time you ride.

Safety Classes

Learn the rules of the road related to operating a bicycle on streets, roads, and paths in California. Learn about proper lane positioning, negotiating intersections and turn lanes, integrating your bicycle in the traffic flow, hazard and crash avoidance, and more. It will change the way you ride and lessen your odds of becoming a traffic statistic. These are the classes:

The Truth and Techniques of Traffic Cycling -- 3 hours (evening classroom) 
Train Your Bike -- 3 hours -- weekend morning on-bike skills
