Host a Bike Commuter Clinic at your Workplace/ Winter Riding Clinic at FreeRide Dec 9th

From Local Motion

2012-11-28 12.53.55Would you like to try biking to work -- but want a few pointers?
We're here to help!  ContactJason VanDriesche about setting up a bike commuter workshop at your workplace. 
Yes, we can even do a clinic on winter bike commuting.  There's no bad weather, just bad clothing and inadequate gear!
In partnership with CATMA, Old Spokes Home and the City of Burlington, we hosted a successful workshop on November 28 for a dozen Burlington employees (see picture).  We make it fun and interactive, so contact us today!

From FreeRide Montpelier

Sunday, Dec. 9th 1-4pm
Are you curious about riding your bicycle through the winter? Have you ever tried it? Do the weather and conditions intimidate you? Then this is the workshop for you. From how to dress, how to maintain your bicycle in the winter and where to park it, to dealing with winter weather challenges on the road and planning your route, this workshop will also include a tutorial on how to make studded snow tires and cheap home-made fenders for snow and slush. This is a very in-depth look at the logistics of actually commuting through the winter in Central Vermont. You will leave equipped with knowledge, inspiration, AND a winter commuting resource booklet! Don’t miss it.
Taught by Josh
Each workshop has a suggested donation of $10 and takes place in the upstairs room of the Freeride Bike Shop (89 Barre St. Montpelier)
Check out our web site for more information about the shop:
