Winter is coming, but it doesn’t have to put a damper on your ride! Join WABA and Black Girls Do Bike for an evening of riding and winter biking basics. We’ll discuss the importance of layers, riding in inclement weather and how see and be seen when riding in the dark.

We will be meeting up at the Hains Point Picnic Area before setting off on a self-paced ride around the park. Each lap is 3.5 miles, giving riders of all experience levels the chance to ride for as long or as little as they want. We will be offering discussions and demos on how to prepare for biking in the winter and handing out bike lights! Once the sun goes down, you’ll even get the chance to test yours out. Whether you are new to bicycling or a seasoned expert, we invite you to come out and enjoy the fun.
