7:00pm at Avalaunch Lounge (in Wild Joe's Coffee)
The Bozeman Bike Kitchen will be hosting a bicycle touring clinic at the Avalaunch Lounge (located in Wild Joe's Coffee) and we'd love to have you in attendance. The event is to be held at 7:00pm on Thursday, April 7th, 2011.
Bicycle touring is one of the most liberating forms of transportation that allows for a complete stimulation of the senses, an intimacy with the environment through which you are traveling, the healthful motion your body craves, fresh exploration of places new or familiar, a chance to meet new friends, and most of all lots of fun!
The skills needed for bicycle touring are wide ranging and require bicycling skills, bicycle maintenance knowledge, camping experience, trip planning, and more. Touring can vary from single day 'supported' rides requiring car support to multi-week 'un-supported' tours requiring cyclists to carry all the gear and supplies necessary for subsistence.
Catherine, a Bozeman Bike Kitchen board member is a skilled bicycle tourer who is excited to share her knowledge and experiences with the Bozeman community this week. She will be presenting a bicycle touring 101 session complete with stories, a hands-on look at her gear, and a time for questions.
