Indoor/outdoor bike workshop teaches basic biking concepts

Experienced cyclists and those just getting started can attend a Bicycle Workshop 9-11:30 a.m., Saturday, May 5, at CoxHealth Fitness Centers North, 1423 N. Jefferson, in Springfield.

This one-of-a-kind seminar consists of indoor and outdoor segments designed to give participants a full understanding of basic biking concepts.

The indoor session will include a presentation about riding and riding styles, and participants will have the opportunity to practice biking basics on a CoxHealth Fitness Centers stationary bike. During the outdoor session participants will use their own bikes to practice turning and stopping techniques on an obstacle course; learn clipping in and out and shifting gears; and will bike a short ride to experience hills, intersections and road etiquette.

There is a $15 fee for CoxHealth Fitness Center members, and a $25 fee for non-members. Space is limited. Call 269-3282.
