The Woodland Bike Campaign announces three bike-related events over the coming weeks:
* Cycling survival class, from 1 to 4 p.m. Thursday, April 4, sponsored by the Woodland Parks and Recreation Department. “This class that will help you find the safest routes, be visible, learn the rules of the road and how to get where you want safely on a bike and with more confidence,” a news release said. “Bring your bike and helmet and be prepared to have fun!”
Participants will get a pre-ride safety check, learn how to repair tires and get tips on preventing theft. The class is recommended for teens and adults.
