The South Irving TRE station is roughly 8 miles from where I work and taking the TRE to the Cycling Savvy class made perfect sense. The class was at Lamar and Belleview, which is about 5 minutes by bike from the Union Station.
I met up with Steve A on the TRE.
Brahma came into my life, I have been using Brahma exclusively for all my commuting needs. Today's trip, which involved multi-modal commuting, was no exception. A Brompton is so versatile, you can not help that it becomes such an integral part of your life.
Having taken LAB's TS101 class, I was very eager to see what topics are covered in the Cycling Savvy class. The topics covered in Truth and Techniques of Traffic Cycling included traffic laws as they applied to bicycles and traffic dynamics. In addition, many traffic scenarios were presented and we brainstormed strategies.
I liked all aspects of Truth and Techniques of Traffic Cycling.
- Even though I was familiar with some of the material, I was captivated by the presentation; the material was presented through very well-organized and powerful slides that used many novel tools including flash, which made the presentation delightfully refreshing and very enjoyable. Both the co-creator of the course, Keri and Waco, our instructor, did an awesome job.
- Special Kudos to the authors for the exceptionally apt and well-made videos.
I ran into this very pleasant Seeing-Eye dog on the train. It brightened my evening a bit more :)
Don't get me wrong - I am not knocking the TS101. It is a fine class, but I liked the Cycling Savvy much better, especially after Day 2. More about Day 2 in a future post!
Hope you had a great weekend!
