Fall & Winter Riding Workshop

Get ready for Bike to Work Week

Free Training Course: Fall and Winter Riding

Wednesday, October 23 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm

Location: Henry Angus Building (Map) Room 254

Bike to Work Week runs from October 28th to November 3rd, 2013. To help you get prepared to ride, UBC is offering a free cycling training course! In addition, we have recently completed some new videos that highlight UBC’s cycling infrastructure, our expectations for cyclists on campus, and just how fun and easy it can be to cycle at UBC. Be sure to check out our ‘ibikehere’ videos!

This intermediate-level workshop is perfect for those who ride to work in the summer and are thinking of trying it in the fall or winter. You’ll learn more advanced tips and tricks about biking to work in Metro Vancouver’s winter riding conditions, including:

  •  Dressing for the weather (staying warm and dry)
  •  More advanced cycling safety
  •  Advanced use of your gears
  •  Cold-weather care for your bike
  •  Lights and visibility
  •  UBC-specific bike parking and resources

Bike maps and information on UBC cycling resources will also be provided. Participation is limited to 30. Email our Coordinator to sign up and be sure to please include the following information with your email.

What have past participants said about the course?

“I’m starting to commute to school downtown, and I love it so far. Thanks so much for the class. I’m using the knowledge from that class every day.” – Annie Dickerson

“Growing up in Vancouver, I always admired my city’s legions of two-wheeling environmentalists and healthy lifestylers, but I assumed I could never do what they did. Now bike riding has become part of my life and I love it.” –Alana Prochuk, The Globe & Mail
