      Answer: A great intro course for new riders and cyclists who've done some group riding but would like to learn more about riding in a group, safety, maintenance, etc.  The course is hosted by our friends at Bike Ohio, and is based on a proven course design offered for years by the Kalamazoo Bicycle Club.

    See course summary HERE.  And, see more course detail and registration contact at Bike Ohio's Facebook post.  Sessions are interactive! After the intro session on April 18th, which is "classroom" only, all subsequent sessions have a brief "classroom" discussion or workshop followed by a group ride.
