Family Biking 101 in March

Just in time for spring cycling, had a great Family Biking panel where we learned about
  • cycling safety and gear
  • family-friendly routes 
  • strategies for supporting beginning riders
  • local shops and organizations that support cycling
Our panel included Gillian Burgess of Kidical Mass Arlington, Erin Potter from Bike Arlington, and Dan Redmond, WABA instructor.

We also had a little help from a second-grader who did some great demos for us and seemed to learn a lot in the process!

Thanks to everyone who participated in this great meeting!
