There are a couple of bike safety classes titled Traffic Skills 101 coming up.

The first is May 8 from 5:30-8:30PM and May 9 from 9AM to 3PM at the Blooming Prairie City Hall.

The second session will be May 15 from 5:30-8:30PM and May 16 from 9AM to 3PM at the Morehouse Park Chalet in Owatonna.

The class is free thanks to the Statewide Health Improvement Program, or SHIP. The cost for Saturday's lunch is $10 and you may bring your own meal on Friday night. Both dates must be attended and a bike and helmet are required. Be prepared for two 4-mile to 6-mile rides on Saturday. You may secure the bikes overnight at both sites.
