CITY BIKING 101 / Hubway is here!
This class is designed for City employees who know how to ride a bike, but whose bicycles are gathering dust, ride occasionally but would like to ride more, or are just plain nervous about riding in the city. Perhaps you would like to start using your bike to ride to work, for errands or to get to meetings throughout the work day. All will benefit from the classes tips and ideas for riding more comfortably and confidently. Attendees will receive tips on route planning, safety, rules of the road, how to look professional when you get to work, and more. There will also be information on the available city-owned bikes for use by city employees for work. The instructor will have a bicycle, helmet, and gear on hand to demonstrate principles, as well as to answer any questions attendees may have.
Hubway is here! As you have probably seen, Cambridge now has 24 Hubway bike share stations throughout the community. There are also 12 in Somerville and 72 in Boston! We will do a brief tutorial on bike share, including how to register, an overview of the stations, and information about using the system.
All participants will get a bicycle helmet to use with your own bike or with a Hubway bike!
Audience: Any interested City employees
Location: 344 Broadway (City Hall Annex), 4th floor conference room
