The Seattle Public Library has teamed up with various organizations — including us at Cascade — to bring you the FREE Urban Self-Reliance Series. Join us at various branches during the month of October to learn what you need to know about riding a bike to and from work and school or around town.
Discover answers to those burning questions like “How do I carry my stuff?” and “What about my hair?” Learn everything from how to lock your bike (hint: cheap cable locks are a bike thief’s dream), where to ride in the road (hint: you can do better than hugging the right edge of the street) and how to use the bike infrastructure (hint: bike boxes increase your visibility) to how to ask your employer to create a bike-friendly workplace (hint: secure parking and showers go a long way).
Free yourself from traffic jams, enjoy better health and see your city up-close from the seat of your bike.
