In conjunction with the development of the NKC Bicycle Master Plan, the City and BikeWalkKC are offering a free course on Confident City Cycling in North Kansas City. This three session course covers state and local rules for urban bicycling, how to fix a flat, and provides real-world practice in riding on the street. Experienced instructors guide the class at your pace so you feel comfortable and confident on your bike. This course is for adults and teens 14+ and will be held at the Parks & Rec Center with bicycling around NKC. The sessions are on August 20, August 27 and September 7.  More information and registration info is available online at https://www.eventbrite.com/e/confident-city-cycling-in-north-kansas-city-tickets-66893228447.

Public Works crews will begin installation of new bump outs on Howell Street next Wednesday, weather permitting, using painted markings, flex posts, and signage. The bump outs will be located at the intersections with Clark Ferguson, 29th Avenue, and 31st Avenue. The bump outs are intended to narrow the traffic lane to 11 feet in order to calm traffic and provide safer crossings for pedestrians. In two locations next to Macken Park, the bump outs will accommodate new bike racks. The bike racks are ordered and should be installed at the end of the month.
