Bike Camp starts Wednesday, May 11th 2016 at 6:30 p.m. Our first session is being held at the Greater Kalamazoo Association of Realtors (GKAR) Auditorium located at 5830 Venture Park Drive, Kalamazoo.

In this first session we will provide an overview of Bike Camp 2016. This will include presentations on

The Bicycle: its selection, adjusting and parts
Bicycling in Traffic (traffic law, changing lanes safely)
Helping Motorists Share the Road
A short video to wrap things up

We'll also ask you to fill out a survey that will help us identify your current fitness level and bicycling goals. This is an informational session only; please do not bring your bike.

Four Saturday morning sessions follow on May 14th, May 21st, , May 28th, and June 4th at 8:30 am at the Portage YMCA, 2900 West Centre. Each two-hour session begins with a short presentation regarding a specific aspect of bicycling or fitness, followed by group training rides of various paces and distances, led by experienced cyclists. Bike Campers at similar fitness levels and with similar distance goals will ride together. Helmets are required.
