Learn! Educate! Advocate!
Bicycle Ambassadors want Salisbury to be the safest place to ride a bike, whether on the street or a trail.
We train people of all ages and abilities to become ambassadors of safe cycling. Afterwards, they work to reduce the number of motor vehicle/bicycle/pedestrian crashes in our community by increasing knowledge and awareness about how to ride and share roads and trails safely.
What do we offer?
- Bicycle safety education presentations for kids, families, businesses, senior groups or any group of six or more people.
- Education at community events. We can staff a booth, set up a bike skills course and more!
