Intro to Biking in Eugene

Tuesday, November 5 at 1:30pm to 3:30pm

Erb Memorial Union (EMU), EMU 008 - Outdoor and Bike Program
1395 University Street, Eugene, OR 97403

Did you know you can get to top destinations in Eugene faster on a bike than on a car? It can take a while to figure it out on your own. Learn how to get around town and have fun with the Bike Program! 

Intro to Biking in Eugene is a series of four group rides designed to teach introductory bike maintenance and navigation around Eugene. Each session will meet at the Bike Program with a short demonstration of how to maintain a main component of a bike, followed by a group ride to a top destination in Eugene using the most comfortable routes and bicycle facilities. By the end of the class, students will be familiar with the best routes through town and will know what to do to keep a bike in working order. Bring your own bike or we will provide a PeaceHealth Rides bike free of charge!
