Bicycling and Walking Around

My bicycle is our second car. I love to bicycle in all weather, for all distances, and on all routes. Bicycling has brought so much joy to my life, and I want to share it with anyone who is interested. I will use my soapbox to tell you about the joys, the freedom, the benefits, and, yes, the challenges of bicycling and walking for transportation.

We’re offering a series of Thursday evening workshops this summer to help you ride your bike knowledgeably, comfortably, and safely. Topics include:


 


Simple Bicycle Maintenance


How Do I Get There? (An interactive discussion)


What’s a Derailleur?


Hills & Gears


Out of Town on Rural Highways


Biking Baltimore: You Can Do It!


Training Tips and Nutrition


Just for Women


Biking with Children


 


Our first workshop, Simple Bicycle Maintenance, is Thursday, May 23, 7 – 8 pm at Brashear Park. You’ll learn how to clean and oil your chain and how to change a flat tire. Two bicycle mechanics will show you how to make your bike run smoothly and answer any other questions you have about bicycle maintenance.


 


Bring your own bike to work on, or learn on one of our extras. Bring your helmet for the half-hour ride afterwards. Check your lights as it might be getting dark.


 


During the summer, workshops will be the 2nd and 4th Thursdays of each month at 7 pm either at Brashear Park or at the Adair County Health Dept. The June 6 workshop, “How Do I Get There? (An interactive discussion)” will be at the Adair County Health Dept., 1001 S. Jamison. We’ll discuss and debate the best ways to get around town. Kirksville is very bikeable, and with a little planning you can bike anywhere in town.


 


Is there a topic you’re interested in that you don’t see covered? Or do you have any other questions or comments about the workshops? Let me know! (Find me on facebook or email rachel at ruhlendavis dot org.)
