Montana Bicyclist Training Program.
DiBrito, Roger, Ed.; And Others
This guide is designed to train elementary students in the riding skills, hazard identification, and traffic analysis necessary for safe bicycling under nearly all urban traffic and roadway conditions. The training manual is divided into four sections. The Instructor's Manual presents brief introductions, background information, and detailed explanations of activities for each of the fifteen lessons on: bicycle sizing and equipment check; traffic mix; hazard identification; stopping; reaction time; rock dodging; emergency turns; scanning to the rear; traffic flow; driveways; residential intersections; high traffic intersections; route selection; controlled environment scanning; and tour of the neighborhood. The Curriculum Guide consists of brief summaries of the objectives, activities, and equipment for each lesson. The third section consists of scripts of audiovisual presentations to accompany several lessons. Appendices in the fourth section include a sample student journal for the lessons, an inspection list, a model bicycle ordinance code, and ordering information for books and films. (CJ)
