Learn how to use your bike to get stuff done, like going shopping or going to work, how to carry things on your bike and how to lock it up when you leave it.  We’ll also talk about using your gears to conquer those hills and cover a little more bike etiquette and law. 

Plus, we’ll take your questions live. Feel free to post your questions in advance.   

We'll have a special drawing for a multi-purpose scarf printed with the Portland bike Map - tune in for details on how you can win this fabulous prize!
