What do you need to know to ride a bicycle safely in traffic? On Wednesday, May 16, League of American Bicyclists certified instructor and City Traffic Engineer Employee Anthony Pratt will share his tips plus bicycle innovations you may see in other cities, some of which will be coming to Colorado Springs.
The lunch-n-learn falls in the midst of National Bike to Work Week (Colorado and Colorado Springs celebrates a month later with a Bike to Work Day scheduled for Wed. June 27, 2012). Pratt will also cover Bike to Work Day as well as the League of American Bicyclists’ 2012 National Bike Challenge, a free way for people to track bicycling miles online this summer competing as individuals, teams, communities and states. The City and other Colorado Springs groups are already creating teams.
The lunch-n-learn runs over the noon lunch hour, from 12:11 to 12: 49 p.m., at the City Administration Building, 30 S. Nevada, in Suite 102. Attendees are encouraged to bring and enjoy their lunches during the presentation. Those who come also have the opportunity to win a door prize tote bag made from reused City banners.
Each month, the City Office of Innovation and Sustainability sponsors a lunch-n-learn topic on an environmental issue. Questions? Contact City of Colorado Springs Sustainability Coordinator Carrie McCausland, 719-385-CSGN (2746) or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Kristin Bennett is our Non-Motorized planning hero. She, Anthony Pratt and the team at the City are changing the face of the roadways in Colorado Springs and adding more bike and pedestrian-friendly infrastructure every month.
This will be an excellent brown bag educational session, you should attend if you can.

Would be nice to have one of the "lunch-n-learn" sessions up North...kinda hard to go all the way down town when you work up North
