Upcoming Roosevelt Island Bike NY Classes And Events - Sunday Bike Maintenance 101 Class, November 6 Street Skills & November 16 Historic Ride

Bike New York's Roosevelt Island Community Outreach Manager Caitlin Goodspeed reports on upcoming bicycle classes and events:
We have a couple (free) classes coming up at Sportspark

The first class is for Roosevelt Island residents only. It's a Bike Maintenance 101 class designed to teach participants how to do basic tune-ups and repairs on their own bikes. It's happening this Sunday from 1pm - 3pm. Here is the registration link.

The second class is happening November 6 at 6:30pm. It's a Street Skills class where we teach people what their rights and responsibilities are as a New York City cyclist. We want people to feel confident and comfortable on the city streets! You can click here to register for this class.
