Last night's free women's bicycle mechanics class was a success! About 15-20 women participated in the class that was put on by Parkview, PACE, and the Great Divide. Parkview employees gave a short women's health education presentation first, then Kyle and Janet from the Great Divide instructed hands-on flat tire changing techniques, while Kim and I demonstrated various on-bike traffic skills.
It was great to see so many women interested in learning more about mechanics and gaining confidence about riding in traffic.
Hopefully we'll see everyone out on the road tomorrow for Bike to Work Day!
