Back by popular demand! We are thrilled to be offering another informative workshop by Kim Segal (RMT) on The Bicycle & The Body.
In this workshop Kim will elaborate upon the ergonomics of bike riding, how to achieve proper bike fit for maximum comfort and minimal strain, as well as working with / preventing injuries.
This workshop is free (though donations are welcome!) and open to the public, no pre-registration required.
Together we turned over
7,000 kg of “waste” into dreams come true by re-building 560 bicycles for children in need across the city and beyond!
You can still be part of the Cycle of Giving! Support year-round bike programming for children and families by donating online.
Special thanks to all our Event Sponsors!
Thank you to all our Repair Stand Sponsors!
