Sharing the Road UPDATES and Cycling News & Tips
First I want to say Thank you to everyone who supported us (Team Sharing the Road) while we were on the road in New Orleans, participating in the Ironman 70.3 event.
The School Training Solutions, Sharing the Road campaign is going strong.
We’ve added more events this month and extended the discount for the Sharing the Road online course. This course will be available, with the discount, until the end of May.
Our “Threat of Road Rage” online course will be available at a discount for the month of June. A third online course will be available for July.
There is a lot of “Cycling News” this week:
May is National Bike Month. This is sponsored by the League of American Bicycles and includes a lot of cycling activities, including a “Biking to Work” initiative.
May 1 – September 30 marks the 2013 National Bike Challenge. The Challenge is an exciting health and wellness initiative that encourages people to bike for transportation and recreation.
If you are interested in participating in any National Bike Month activities, I’ve included links to sponsor websites in the body of this post.
I am planning to bike to work during the Month of May.
A lot of people think that commuting to work on a bike takes too much time.
As a rule of thumb, commuting to work via cycling will take about twice as long as driving. However, trips less than 3 miles are often faster by bike, and those 5 to 7 miles long take about the same time, as driving.
Just something to think about.
Thank you for watching and reading. If you would like to follow our Sharing the Road campaign or access one of the online courses we are offering, visit: www.schooltrainingsolutions.com/sharetheroad
Remember while driving be aware of your surrounds and continue sharing the road with pedestrians, cyclists, motorcycles, school buses, and other vehicles.
