City Cycling Classes... a good idea... experience offering insight to the situation

one of the greatest dangers for the city cyclists... is themselves

so many "newbies" emulate the behavior or maybe the misbehavior of the urban cyclists that they have seen for years
sure... the messenger may be going the wrong way on the one way street
but does that mean that you should try this?

perhaps not...
the control on the bike and the hyper alertness of the average messenger is quite different than just pointing the bike the wrong way on a one way street
there is more to it than that
and really... is it as important for you to shave time off your ride as it is for the worker trying to make their deliveries as fast and efficiently as possible?
