Bike commuting class at Spokes, Etc.

Bike Ambassador Daniel Hoagland teaches
bike commuting class at Spokes, Etc.
Despite the rainy night, over 30 cyclists attended the bike commuting seminar at Spokes, Etc. given by WABA's Bike Ambassador Daniel Hoagland.  The class was held at the Alexandria store on Quaker Lane.

As we noted in an earlier blog post, WABA is offering the class to local bike shops in the area. WABA normally charges $225 for the seminars but is offering these classes for free.

We have taught a similar class at places like AOL and GMU. We are working with WABA to possibly offer these classes at other Spokes locations, so we attended this class to assist Daniel and check out his presentation. He did a great job and there were lots of questions during and after the presentation. If you're interested in using your bike for local trips and commuting to work, you should consider taking the class. See the WABA course calendar or the FABB events page for a schedule of future classes.

We rode to the class from Reston. There was very little rain on the trip down which took about an hour and 20 minutes, about the same time it would take using transit. We weren't so lucky on the return as it rained hard for the second half of the trip. It was a mild night so a little rain wasn't a problem. During the trip we heard the first spring peepers along the stretch of the W&OD Trail between Vienna and Reston, and we had to dodge lots of frogs sitting on the trail, sure signs of Spring.

Spring Peepers. Another reason to do things by bicycle!
