Watch, learn and ride! City ‘pedals’ bike lane safety video

Safety for cyclists and motorists is in full focus with the City of Lethbridge’s new bike lane education videos.

The two-part video series highlights safety messages and tips for both cyclists and motorists. The videos are filmed downtown to help show residents how to safely navigate the newly constructed bike lane network.

Collaboration and expertise from the Lethbridge Police Service in addition to several City departments helped to form the safety messaging in the series. Sergent Ryan Darroch of the Downtown Police Unit guides viewers through the safety messaging and tips. The Downtown Policing Unit often patrols the area on bicycles and understands the common missteps of motorists and cyclists alike.

Residents looking to become more confident on two wheels may also be interested in an upcoming workshop. The City is hosting a Can Bike cycling skills workshop on June 22. The workshop is designed for people with beginner-level experience on a bicycle. Participants must be over the age of 18 to register and spots are limited. Registration will open in the coming weeks for this workshop with information being made available at the City’s website and Facebook page.

Part one of the City’s Bike Lane Safety video is available now, with part two dropping later this month. Part one focuses on tips and safety messaging for motorists with part two highlighting the same for cyclists.

Local cyclists interested in checking out the new bike lanes may be interested in joining this weekend’s Jane’s Walk events. There are two cycling tours scheduled to take place downtown and one in the River Valley. Details and information can be found on the Jane’s Walk website.
