In preparation for Bike to Work Day, BWB will be hosting a seminar on how to bike on the roads safely, followed by a bike ride on the streets of DC (because if you can survive DC, you can survive anything).

9:30am – 11:30am Safety Seminar
At the seminar you will learn the ABCs of bike safety, how to navigate an urban area, and how to be visible to motorists. We will provide you with a bike map, so you can map your route from home to work.

11:30am – 12:30PM Bike Ride
We will take a short ride around the streets of DC, so you can become comfortable riding with motorists on the road.

Who should attend?
All levels who want to be more comfortable biking on the road.
