Students at the Sonoma Charter School learned lessons in bicycle safety and etiquette Friday at the school. Here, California Highway Patrol officer Bruce Martin watches students perform one of the exercises. The class was put on by the Sonoma County Bicycle Coalition. Some of the exercises included a figure-eight where riders had to learn to yield and the turtle race which taught balance and control.

  • Just my few thoughts

    It would be nice, if the. Intent was placed on the adult riders who frequent Sonoma Roads. This morning I was driving down Verano Avenue, when a not one but 4 Cyclist all dressed alike, ignored the Stop Sign at Robinson, causing not just myself but the driver in the other Directin to stop abruptly then being given the Middle Salute.
    I understand that they are just as capable if not more to stop. There will be a serious accident soon caused by these Riders. If not by a local resident but just as easily by one of the many tourists who visit our community.

      It is the law that cyclists of all ages, including children, MUST obey traffic laws of the road. That means stopping at stop signs, signal lights, travel on the right hand side of the road, give signals AND all the rest. It’s amazing how children weave in and out of traffic in any direction.
