All Season Cycling Workshop

Saturday, October 22nd

Commuting by foot, transit or bike is a great way to enjoy this fabulous autumn weather. But alas, this too shall pass. Our sunny, balmy weather will be replaced by a (more familiar) cooler, damper version.

If you got the biking bug this summer and are interested in carrying into to the fall and winter months, join PBOT for this free workshop to transform you to an all-season cyclist.

Learn some tips from experienced cyclists on staying dry, comfortable and safe. Put this new knowledge to action with the with a easily-paced bike tour of sustainable stormwater facilities immediately following the workshop.
