Boulder County next week will hold a free class on road safety directed at both drivers and bicyclists. The class, which will be taught by Denver-based nonprofit Bicycle Colorado, will cover legal and safety issues from behind handlebars or a steering wheel.

“Bicycle Colorado’s mission is to lead a ... movement that champions the interests of everyone who rides or wants to ride a bicycle in Colorado,” a Boulder County news release states.

The class, which will meet from 6:15 to 7:45 p.m. Tuesday, is geared toward “cyclists and drivers of all ages and abilities ... (and) aimed at informing both groups how they can safely coexist on the roadway,” according to the release.

This is the first time the class is being offered to the public in Boulder, but it has been offered in Fort Collins and received positive reviews, according to the release.

The class will meet in the city of Boulder New Britain Building, 1101 Arapahoe Ave.

The class is free, but space is limited. Those who plan to attend are asked to preregister at bit.ly/BoulderFeb12 .
