Learn how easy it is to get around your city on your own power or with the help of public transit--even if your city is one as vast and busy as Los Angeles! We'll cover equipment, clothing, techniques, and attitudes that make all-weather bicycling not only practical but pleasurable. Free yourself from obesity, stress, high fuel prices, and boredom, and free the planet from sprawl and pollution and the gigantic tax subsidies given to road abusers. And no, you won't need to dress in Lycra!

Presenter Rick Risemberg has been a bicycle commuter in Los Angeles for most of the last forty years, and presently, at age 55, rides a fixed-gear bicycle up and down LA's hills in all weather, to business meetings, coffeehouse visits, or just because it's a nice day out. He edits The New Colonist , an online 'zine dedicated to sustainable urban development, and Bicycle Fixation, covering the bike commuter beat, as well as designing and manufacturing a line of clothing for bike commuters.

Pre-registration is required.
