Tonight is the next installment of our virtual Fix Your Own Bike session! This is our weekly Zoom call where we chat about all kinds topics related to bikes. We'll likely recap our weekend training seminar and what opportunities for future bike education look like.
 
You can't use our tools, you can't come into the shop, but you can get as much of our solid advice as you need so you can take the next steps toward getting your bike riding right again.

Some of our top mechanics will be on the call so it's going to be a lot like NPR's Car Talk, but for bikes. Plus, if you have a smartphone or webcam, we can help you diagnose what is happening in real time.

If you just want to hang out and talk bikes, that's cool too.

THIS IS 100% FREE.

On Sunday, September 13th, four Athens area candidates along with four others from the Southeast region completed a three-day seminar to become League Cycling Instructors (LCIs). The League of American Bicyclists teaches instructors “to help people feel more secure about getting on a bike, to create a mindset that bikes are treated as a vehicle, and to ensure that people on bikes know how to ride safely and legally.”

The four candidates from BikeAthens join Professor Chris Mojock, who was previously the sole active LCI in Athens. Athens now has 5 active LCIs to bring more opportunities to teach safe cycling education to the community.

Over three days of virtual training, all of the LCI candidates learned the ins and outs of the League’s Smart Cycling curriculum and intensive parking lot training and road riding. Current LCIs observed the candidates and evaluated their progress and safety behaviors.

The seminar was organized by Georgia Bikes! and hosted by BikeAthens. Scott Long, executive director of BikeAthens and one of the new LCIs said, “We are excited about getting more certified instructors in Athens and all over the Southeast region. This will allow us to offer more in depth training on a regular basis and potentially get even more LCI instructors certified to teach. It’s important to our local cycling community that all people who ride in the Athens area have the opportunity to get educated on how to ride smart.”
Tonight is the next installment of our virtual Fix Your Own Bike session! This is our weekly Zoom call where we chat about all kinds topics related to bikes. We will discuss our continuing development of bicycle related education as well as bicycle mechanics. Of course, we will answer any bike questions you may have as well.

ALERT: Until further notice, the section of the North Oconee River Greenway Trail between Loop 10 (near Sandy Creek Nature Center) and College Ave. will be closed for emergency repairs. Repairs are currently expected to take one week to complete.
ANNOUNCEMENT: In an ongoing effort to see positive change in the cycling world, we really want to get the word out about this scholarship opportunity. The Professional Bicycle Mechanics Association has created this unique scholarship open to Black, Indigenous, and people of color to get top notch industry training.    

"We need your help to reach those who would benefit the most from this grant opportunity. We want to help diversify our industry by looking outside the normal circles.

The application process is now open. The PBMA has created a committee of five industry professionals of varied backgrounds who will review and score each application based on its completeness and each individuals overall interest in being a long term part of positive change to the cycling industry as well as their personal need for financial assistance to achieve that goal.

If you have any questions or need help, please email them to: BIPOC@ProBMA.org, a committee member will respond."
As mentioned yesterday, we are excited to host BikeLaw Georgia as they present BikeLaw 101 September 8th at 6PM. Even if you think you know everything there is to know about bikes, the law, and what you should do in a crash, you will still learn something. Sign up is FREE, link in bio.

Also, tonight we will be bringing another session of Fix Your Own Bike, Zoom Edition. We will be back broadcasting from the shop and we will be taking your questions while we work. Link in bio.
