UPDATED: Free Bike Commute Workshops


The Bicycle Transportation Alliance is offering many free bike commute workshops for September Bike Commute Challenge.  There will be three at the Portland Building (1120 SW 5th Ave) on Tuesday 9/1 and Wednesday 9/2 from Noon - 1:00 pm and Thursday 9/3, 11:00am - Noon.  Many more are scheduled - check out the calendar.

Here is a description from the BTA's Bike Commute resources page:

The BTA's Bike Commute Workshops are a great first step towards bike commuting. They are also a place for seasoned bicyclists to learn more, share what they know about commuting with new riders, and find out who in their workplace is interested in biking to work.

Topics covered include:

* Safe and legal riding

* What you need to know about lights and rain gear

* Carrying stuff - including clothes, groceries and kids

* What to do about your hair

* Route planning and maps

The informative presentations are followed by time for questions and discussion. Presenters also spend time offering route-planning assistance on a one-on-one basis after the presentation. Workshops are led by BTA staff or experienced volunteers, or, in the case of workplaces far from Portland, by motivated employees.
