Join us for a free bicycle safety workshop before the Jefferson Bicycle Master Plan meeting! The workshops will take place immediately preceding the public meetings. Stick around to see the unveiling of the new draft bicycle master plan and give your input. Bikes are not required, but recommended for the workshops!
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, relieve stress, and get you where you need to go without getting stuck in traffic and by saving money in your wallets!
