Join us as we provide riders with a three-part workshop to help maximize your riding experience.

In this winterizing workshop, riders will learn how to prepare their body and bicycles during the winter months. A panel led by Judith Desire and cycling enthusiasts will discuss personal techniques and methods to winterizing a bicycle and how to remain alert and safe on the road. Learn to change a flat tire and more basic bike workshop skills.  Short films on biking in the elements will be screened during the day.  A Q&A will follow the talk.

Look out for two more workshops coming up!

  • Alone on the Road Repair - March 24
  • Spring is Here! Get Ready to Ride - April 14

Judith Desire is the founder of Uptown & Boogie Bicycle Advocacy, an organization that provides cyclist based social activities to the Uptown Manhattan and Bronx communities. Our goal is to provide New Yorker riders with a greater and better understanding of commuting and traveling throughout the Uptown and Bronx areas as well as to promote awareness on the health benefits of cycling.
