On Wednesday, from noon to 12:30 p.m. and again from 12:30 p.m. to 1 p.m., a League Cycling instructor (LCI) will be hosting a free lunch and learn open to the public. This session will be held in the LRH Lower Level Conference Rooms A and B.
A second, progressive lunch and learn is planned from noon to 12:30 p.m., and again from 12:30 to 1 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 16, in LRH Lower Level Conference Rooms C and D.
Even if you are not a bicyclist, feel free to attend as there will be pertinent information about motorists and bicyclists sharing the road.
The LCI’s will also be hosting a free tire-changing demonstration at Athletic Republic at 5:30 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 9 and Wednesday, Oct. 23, followed by a group bike ride around town at 6 p.m.
