I'm looking for a workshop/class for beginning bikers to learn about riding in the streets/road rules/etc but am having a hard time finding anything. I am seeing things for maintenance and for group rides, but I would like to do something that focuses on getting on the road. I have a bike and helmet and know how to ride, so I don't need anything entirely basic. But I have never ridden with traffic and was hoping for something about that. Any recommendations? Thanks!

It looks like PSU's Continuing Education Department offers a class through the Bike Hub called How to Commute by Bicycle. I haven't taken the class or anything, but from the course description it sounds like it might be what you are looking for.

The city has a class that bicycle traffic offenders have to take. It might be helpful, it goes over all the rules you are supposed to follow.
