I am so excited to announce that, with the help of Kelby Bowers, we will be hosting a workshop to help you learn how to ride bikes in traffic. This is a series of 4 bike rides, every Monday, during the month of May (except Memorial Day). Kelby has hosted numerous beginner bike rides throughout the city for years and years. He is an avid cyclist and bicycle commuter with a vast knowledge of bicycle laws and our rights as bicyclists. Most importantly, he can teach you how to ride your bike safely in traffic. Please join us!
Urban Bike Riding 101
During Bike Month (May), SPUN Bicycles is hosting the Urban Bike Riding 101 Workshop. This workshop teaches bicycle safety to adults through the relative safety of riding on the neighborhood streets of Northside. We will build stamina and gain confidence by practicing how to get from here to there in an urban setting. There are 4 rides planned, every Monday, except for Memorial Day.
Bring your bike, your helmet (required), and be prepared to have a great time. If you do not have a bike (yet), there is a Red Bike Station at Hoffner Park – first come, first serve,
DESCRIPTION: Introduction to urban riding. Adults only.
