Well the snow hasn’t come yet but it can’t be far off. And that means the winter biking season is just around the corner. If you are considering biking through the winter, come join us on Thursday October 28 from 6 PM to 7:45 PM at REI for Part 1 of our Winter Bike Commuting Clinic. We’ll cover gear, riding tips, and more. We’re setting aside some time for “Bike Consultations”, so if you’ve been wondering how you can convert your existing bike into a snow bike, bring it in and together with the winter biking experts from REI we’ll show you how.
We will also be providing reflective tape to increase your visibility, courtesy of the Alaska Injury Prevention Center. Or you can wander through REI and get bike lights or other equipment and clothing to keep on riding through the winter.
Part 2 of our clinic is 11 AM Saturday November 13. We’re meeting at Goose Lake for a group winter ride. Helmets are required, as is suitable winter riding clothing. We’ll meet there the second Saturday of each month through the winter. The group rides and REI clinic are free.
