Bicycle Safety Education

Bike Safety

Our community is a wonderful place to ride bikes. From the Ruth Bascom Riverpath System to the bike lanes that follow almost every public street in Eugene and Springfield, getting around on two wheels is easy and safe.


Eugene Rec wants to help kids find their confidence on a bike, and this October we’re offering three chances for fifth to seventh graders to take a FREE bike safety course where they will learn the basics of safe riding, self-awareness, proper helmet fit and the importance of following traffic laws. Not only will they be better riders after the week-long course, they’ll be safer on the roads, which will give parents peace of mind.


Bike SafetyThe program, taught by knowledgeable River House Outdoor Center instructors, will be after school from 4:15-6 p.m. during the weeks of Oct. 12, 19 and 26. The first week will be at Sheldon Community Center, the second will be at Petersen Barn Community Center and the third will be at Hilyard Community Center. During the week students will practice with parking lot drills and neighborhood rides. The equipment will be sanitized each day and class sizes are limited to 15 students. Masks must be worn when distancing isn’t possible.


If you have questions, please contact the River House at 541-682-5329 or register online.
