I HIGHLY recommend this course. It cannot hurt your ability to get around, and might well help. You may want bike infrastructure everywhere, or motorists to be more polite, but your OWN abilities and understanding are the ONE thing you can really do anything about in the short run. Show your family you care! What's more, UNLIKE the course I took, you don't have to sit through a full day of lecture before you get out on the bike. While my teachers were great, lectures are STILL boring! Boring for the teachers, too.
