(November 6, 2014) Let Portland By Cycle (PBC) keep you active and on your bike all winter long. Just in time for the rainy weather, PBC is offering a free All Season Cycling Class on Thursday, November 13 from 6:30-8pm at the PCC Climb Center, 1626 SE Water Avenue. Here are a few examples of what you will learn:
- Simple bike maintenance tips for winter
- Strategies for staying warm and dry without breaking the bank
- Bike handling techniques for wet weather
For some additional motivation for trying out your new skills, join PBC for the Coffee and Donuts Ride on Saturday, November 15 from 9:45am-1pm starting from Irving Park at NE Fremont and 7th Avenue.
This ride will be an easy paced loop with several stops along the way to refuel and is great for folks new to biking or new to the area. The approximately 14-mile route will follow mostly low-traffic streets and neighborhood greenways with some off-street paths. As always, the ride is free but helmets are required.
Be sure to bring your own cup for coffee and cash for snacks. As an added incentive, there will also be a free raffle at both the class and the ride. We hope you’ll join us!
