Paths for People and Bike Edmonton are pairing Edmontonians who have winter cycling experience with folks who want to give it a try.
The two non-profit organizations hope to foster the city’s cycling community and boost Edmontonians’ knowledge, comfort and confidence around cycling in the colder months.
Want to get involved?
*It’s a 5-hour time commitment
How it works:
1) Panel and Meet-n-Greet Session
Friday, February 28 (7-9pm)
Seasoned winter-cyclists will cover the how-tos in a panel discussion. Then the mentors will be paired with novice winter-cyclists to answer any questions and problem solve one-on-one
2) Knowledge Sharing
February 28-March 13
A month for the new winter cyclists to try out what they heard and learned at the panel session. They have a chance to ask questions and get insights from their mentor via email over the month.
3) Group Ride
Saturday, March 14 (11am-12pm)
Meet at the Bike Edmonton South Community Workshop
A one-hour group ride with all the mentors and mentees.
