April, 2019 – During the month of April we will be featuring presentations to help you become a more confident and educated cycler! Whether you are new to biking and need information about how to choose a bike for you, or if you are interested in riding for commute or pleasure, if you are interested in learning about ebikes, or would like to take advantage of the great trails around town, these presentations will help you on your way to enjoying the benefits of cycling. If you are over 50 but not yet a member of the BSAC, you are welcome to attend as a guest.
Choosing a Bike that’s Right for You
This presentation from the owners of Earl’s Bike Shop will cover how to choose a bike for your style of riding, fitting a bike to suit you, basic maintenance to care for your bike, and information on electronic bikes and mobility issues.

3rd Wheel Bikes: Riding for Renewal
3rd wheel bikes are great for providing opportunities for those with ambulatory limits to access the park trails and improve health and wellness. 3rd wheel bike advocate, Tony Noordmans, will cover the benefits of this type of riding and share information on how to get started, including local trails that are easily accessible.

Confident City Cycling
Join Smart Trips for a confident city cycling class. Brush up on skills that make bicycling safe and comfortable. In the classroom we will cover roadway positioning, moving through intersections, choosing good routes, and more. For the second part, we will be riding to the WTA bus station and will discuss bike boxes, shifting gears, and you will be able to try putting your bike on the bus. You are welcome to join for the classroom instruction, the ride, or both! Bring a bike in good working condition if you will join the ride.
