Upcoming Bike Safety workshop, with free locks, pizza, and more!

FOR UVM STUDENTS ONLY! Get free pizza, bike lights AND Kryptonite U-Locks, and all you need to do is show up (and stick around).

Our bike experts will give you some tips on how to stay safe while riding your bike on the street and in the neighborhood, answer your questions about the rules of the road (the police are stepping up enforcement on people who blow stop signs, or don't have lights at night- which comes with a double-digit fine.)

AND give you useful pointers on how to avoid the common bike theft pit-falls. You'll even get a free Bike Benefits sticker--which once you put it on your helmet, you'll get discounts at shops throughout Burlington!
