Bicycling for Boomers: Gentilly

6:30 – 8:00 am
Gentilly Fest at Pontchartrain Park (on Press Drive) at the Medical Tent near the Basketball Court
FREE (but pre-registration is required)
Get back on the Saddle
Dust off that old bike, or walk up to see how you can incorporate bicycle riding into your everyday life.
Through hands-on activities, we’ll answer the question:
“As I age, what is the right bike for me?” (e.g. trikes, arthritis, rehabbing from an injury or knee replacements, safety)
Benefits of Bicycling
- Gain a higher quality of life
- Experience your neighborhood in ways you never thought possible
- Have more energy
Rotate through three stations to help you
- Choose the right bike
- Ride Safely
- Gain Confidence
Experts at the workshop will discuss different kinds of bikes, local bike mechanics can help with basic repairs (lube chains, tighten bolts, fix flats), and bicycle instructors will teach you how to ride safely on our streets and ride with confidence.
First 50 riders to register get a FREE bicycle patch kit
