Join Bike Easy for a Community Bicycle Workshop at the Center for Ethical Living. We will be working with young adults from Ride for the Future, a summer program to bike from New Orleans to Houston and visit communities impacted by fossil fuels, and community members are welcome.
Our workshop will focus on basic and advanced safety techniques, riding safely in a group, and we’ll have a short Q & A session about the need-to-knows of bicycle touring. Join us and answer your questions about bicycling safely and with confidence, and learn more about traveling long distances by bicycle!
