B!KE: The Peterborough Community Cycling Hub (293 George Street North) needs your help to stay a float, which is why they are hosting their first ever B!KE-a-thon on July 13th to raise the funds they need to keep their doors open and their programs running.
The workshops will be held on Sundays once per month from 12 p.m. to 2 p.m. The cost per workshop is $15 for members, $20 for non-members, or $40 for the series. You can register in advance via email as space is highly limited.
Your Body - April 27th - Guest Instructor - Kieran Andrews
When you plan to spend so much time in the saddle, getting a good fit is of utmost importance! Kieran will share his expertise on bike fit and set up; how you can prepare your body for touring; and talk about what to expect when you get into the saddle for the long haul.
Your Stuff - May 25th - Guest Instructor - Marilyn Freeman
Marilyn has toured extensively and is excited to provide participants with a hands-on exploration of how to handle your stuff while on tour. Join her during this session to learn what is the "yard sale"? How do you pack your panniers? What to bring and what not to bring?
Your Route - May 24th - Guest Instructor - Thom Willington
During his six month trip across the Middle East, Thom learned a lot about picking a good route. Join him for this session to learn about the many resources available to you while you decide where to ride and where to stay. From short local tours to long distance international ones, many of the same considerations apply.
