Bike Buyer's Workshop

Overview

Shopping for a bike can be an intimidating prospect, especially if you’re not sure what to buy, where to buy it, or how much it should cost. This free 1-hour session is full of valuable information to help you navigate the bike-buying process. We’ll go over different bike types and their uses, how much you can expect to spend, bike storage tips, and more. You’ll be shopping with confidence before you know it. Questions?
