March 19 at 5:30 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 5:30pm on Monday, repeating until May 28, 2018

We’ll cover a number of bike related topics including helmet fitting, rules of the road, equipment/gear, safety/street smarts, and how to choose rides and routes. Post-ride there will be plenty of time for Q&A, social networking, and occasional no-host dinner at a nearby restaurant.

A 3-month spring series of weekly rides hosted by Vancouver Bicycle Club.

Route – Wind through the flat neighborhoods and the cemetery. Low traffic to start. Then MacArthur bike lanes, lovely green bike box at Mill Plain, etc.

Target Audience – People just starting out. Maybe they aspire to triathlete events. Maybe they want to commute to work/coffee shop. Maybe they want to shed pounds. Whatever.

One hour rides through the neighborhood geared to be slow, short, and flat. 5-10 miles. 10 mph. Time for discussion/questions.

Goals: shifting, braking, signaling, gear discussions, group riding skills, bike lanes, intersections, weather, commuting etc.
