Why Workshops?

 

According to the Pedestrian and Bicycling Information Center, nearly 30% of all bicycle crashes involve only the rider.  17% from falling and 13% from not paying attention.  That’s one third of all bicycle accidents involving the rider alone.  Learn how to avoid these types of crashes with more knowledge on bicycle handling and mechanics!

The National Highway Traffic Safety Association suggests taking safety and other classes in order to help avoid injuries and crashes on the road.  Knowing how to go and stop isn’t all you need to know in order to have a safe and confident commute or casual ride.   Riders who are knowledgeable, comfortable and confident will not only bike more, but are more likely to upgrade and customize their own bikes for an even more enjoyable experience!
