What Are We Doing Today? Taking a Class, Riding a Bike
Rochester Patch is participating in MDOT's "Training Wheels" course to learn about better biking around Rochester.
You never forget how to ride a bike, right?
We hope not.
Today, we're taking to the streets of Rochester and Rochester Hills on two wheels.
Rochester Patch editor Kristin Bull is participating in Training Wheels: On-Road Bicycle Facility Design Training, sponsored by the Michigan Department of Transportation in conjunction with the cities of Auburn Hills, Rochester and Rochester Hills.
The intent of the daylong course is to show cities how they can plan and create better bike facilities and make themselves more bike-friendly — so important to our area full of trails and paths.
We'll be joining government leaders and planners, biking around town and learning about how to make biking better.
We can't wait to tell you all about our journey.
