Back by popular demand, we are hosting our 2 hour Community Bicycle Safety Workshop!
Dust off that old bike, or walk up to see how you can incorporate bicycle riding into your everyday life. Learn and practice safe techniques that will give you confidence wherever you ride your bicycle.
And, this is a special one time event coinciding with 3rd District NOPD to license your bikes! More on that event here!
All are welcome, especially adults and their families (children, grandparents and friends). Through hands-on activities we’ll help build your confidence to integrate bicycling into your everyday tasks. More bicycling will make you feel healthier, more connected to your community and relieve stress.
