"Know Your Bike Laws" Virtual Event w/ Bike Safe Boston

What should you do if you're right hooked by a driver when riding? Do you have to stay to the far right in the vehicle travel lane when riding? What if someone opens a car door and steps out and you bike into them? Can cops really take a kid's bicycle if they're not wearing a helmet?...

We've heard a lot of questions about how to interpret the laws pertaining to bicyclists and bicycling in Massachusetts, and we gotta admit it's a bit confusing when you dig into the Massachusetts General Law, Chapter 85, Section 11B.

To help us understand some of the nuances, we've invited bike lawyer Josh Zisson from Bike Safe Boston to host a discussion of the rights and responsibilities of all road users out there. For this hour-long event, we'll cover the laws, what can happen if you break them, and what you should know if you're ever in a crash.

This virtual event will take place over Zoom, and is FREE and open to everyone. RSVP below.

And ask your questions in advance by posting them as a comment to this page below. We'll pick and choose a few questions to answer during the Q&A and make sure Josh gets back to you to follow up.

Please RSVP below and we'll have more details closer to the date!
