Winter cycling free workshop 10/12

Are you interested in trying year-round bicycle riding but aren't sure how to make it feasible for you? Check out Stay the Course: Winter Cycling Tips and Tricks, a free workshop to promote biking as year-round transportation in Chicago, happening this Sunday, 10/12 at 11 a.m. at Logan Square Farmers Market Grassy Knoll, Southeast corner of Logan Blvd. & Milwaukee Ave.

Workshop topics will include: winter biking attire with the ever-popular "get layered" demo; riding safely though wind, snow, and ice; gear and maintenance tips; and a visit from jolly old St. Nick! Free door prizes will feature cycling accessories that will help make all- season cycling a breeze.

This workshop is part of Chicago Bike Winter, a series of educational, social, and activist events encouraging all-season cycling since 1999. For more information, visit www.bikewinter.org or call 773.252-4657.
