Commuter Mentoring - September 25, 2018
We will meet at the Meteor Cafe (1001 Kavanaugh Blvd, Little Rock, AR 72205) at 5:45pm and roll out at 6:00pm. Experienced commuters will coach newbies. We will focus on the three skill areas below, but experienced coaches will help overcome any challenges new road riders may be having. We will discuss and decide upon a route comfortable for participants to The Fold - Botanas and Bar (3501 Old Cantrell Rd, Little Rock, Arkansas 72202) and ride there while practicing the skills below.(Fig. 1).
There are several possible routes to get from the Meteor Cafe to The Fold (Fig. 1). Depending on comfort levels on Markham, we will take the 16 min. route below so that we can learn about how to ride safely and courteously on the Arkansas River Trail.
At The Fold, we will join the monthly BACA social where experienced riders will toast your success and give advise for low-stress bike routes from your home or work. We will make arrangements for everyone to have a coach back to the Meteor.
