Workshops Promote Commuter Safety for Cyclists, Walkers

Loudoun County government is hosting free workshops this week designed to help bicyclists and pedestrians better share roads and trails so they can commute to work safely.

The workshops will feature a League of American Bicyclists-certified instructor, Lisa Campbell, who will offer safety procedures and traffic regulations for all users of Virginia’s roads and paths, including bicyclists, pedestrians and motorists.

The workshops will be at the Loudoun Workforce Resource Center in Leesburg. They will cover walking and riding safely work or school, and sharing trails and roads with cars. There will be equipment demonstrations and giveaways. The program is sponsored by the Loudoun Workforce Resource Center, Loudoun Commuter Services and Sharing the Road in Virginia, a project of the Northern Virginia Regional Commission.

The workshops are scheduled from 5:30 to 7 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 16 and from 9:30 to 11 a.m. Friday, Aug. 17 at the Shenandoah Building, 102 Heritage Way NE in Leesburg. The workshop will be through the rear entrance. Registration is free but required at loudoun.gov/wrcworkshops.
