Rutland-area residents are invited to attend a Basic Everyday Bicycling Workshop provided by Local Motion and hosted by the Rutland Recreation Department and the Rutland Regional Planning Commission. This online workshop is scheduled for Tuesday, April 21 at 3:00 pm, and the recording of the live workshop will be available afterward.
The Everyday Bicycling Workshop is intended for anyone and everyone who is interested in getting back on their bike, expanding their biking comfort level, or looking for a refresher in bike safety and rules of the road. Everyday Bicycling doesn’t mean riding your bike every day - it means using your bicycle to do those everyday trips that we all make, from going grocery shopping, to getting to work, or even picking up the kids from school.
In just one short hour, participants in our Basic Everyday Bicycling Workshop learn:
- What gear you need (and don't need) to stay safe and comfortable
- How to make sure your bike is in good shape for commuting
- How to map out a route that fits with your available time and comfort level
- How to "read" the street and ride safely under a range of conditions
The Everyday Bicycling Project is generously funded by the VTrans GoVT project and is free to all participants. The workshop will be held as a webinar to give participants an opportunity to ask questions about their own biking goals and about biking around the Rutland area in general.
