“Bike Commuter-cation Day” in SF

23 Jul

I’m hopping on a plane tomorrow morning to DC and will be gone for a week so I’ll be taking a break from blogging. While I’m gone, there’s a great event going on in San Francisco that sounds applicable to anyone living in the Bay Area – “Bike Commuter-cation Day”.

I know I’m terrified of biking in the Bay Area so these workshops sound like they could be helpful for learning how to navigate the streets safely. Here’s the info – have fun!

If you (or someone you know) is thinking about bike commuting for the first time, or are finding yourself on your bike more and more with gas prices going up and up, then this is a perfect day for you.
