BOULDER, COLORADO – JUNE 8, 2018 – Cyclists 4 Community (C4C) has partnered with the Boulder County Transportation to launch a bicycle friendly driver program, intended to teach motorists about how best to share the roads safely around cyclists. Classes will also be developed to target cyclists by teaching good, safe and courteous road etiquette, around motor vehicles.
Patterned after the successful program developed in Fort Collins which has taught more than 3,000 drivers, Boulder County will be working with Cyclists 4 Community locally, and Bicycle Colorado at the state level in rolling out the curriculum. The class will address:
- Why sharing the road is the safest alternative for both motorists and bicyclists
- What’s legal and what’s not legal, for both motorists and bicyclists
- Common crashes and how to avoid them
- Why bicyclists “take the lane” and what motorists should do in response
- How to navigate bicycle related infrastructure such as: sharrows, bike boxes, and green lanes.
