Feb 26 - Bicycle Safety "Train the Trainers" for Glennwood Academy

As part of Decatur's Safe Routes to School Program, the Active Living Division will be conducting it's first ever Bicycle Safety "Train the Trainers" Session at the Decatur Recreation Center on Thursday, February 26 from 6-8 pm (no charge).

Our goal is to build up a group of trained volunteers to help with the 4th grade Bicycle Safety Training Class that SRTS conducts at Glennwood Academy every year. We want to create a core group of trainers that perhaps can help offer the training at other venues during the year.

The class will be taught by the League of American Bicyclists certified League Cycling Instructor, Jyotsna Vanapalli, who created this course and assisted with the Decatur SRTS Pilot Project.

Please let me know if you are interested. The 4th grade training session is one of the most popular parts of Glennwood's SRTS program and we want to make educational and fun.
