Bike Safety with Bike Works, June 23

As the weather begins to warm up this season, many folks will opt to bring out their bikes and make the most of their sunny commute. As one can imagine, this could mean a greater risk, as more folks on the road mean higher likelihood for accidents.

During this event, you’ll learn bicycle safety tips from our local bike experts at Bike Works. We’ll cover the rules of the road, from properly fitting your helmet to riding defensively and predictably. Find out what you can do to prevent bicycle injuries during this informative seminar.
