Mark your calendars! Saturday 8/23 at 2:00 p.m. in Quebec: Louise Penny Pre-Book Launch Party in Quebec! – Calling all Louise Penny fans! Louise Penny will be speaking at a pre-book launch party at the Community Centre in Knowlton, Quebec. The party is free and open to the public, but very likely to be over-subscribed. We have reserved 12 seats at the event. Would you like to attend? We will help coordinate car pools. Knowlton, on the shores of Lac Brome, is about a two-hour drive from Shelburne. Call Carol at 985-5124 to reserve your seat and to obtain more information.
Thursday 8/21 at 7:00 p.m.: Bike Commuting Workshop: Getting into Bicycling – Have you been wanting to bike more? Ready to take the next step, but not quite sure where to start? Local Motion can help! In one hour, participants in our Bike Commuting workshop learn all this and more:
- What gear you need (and don’t need) to stay safe and comfortable
- How to make sure your bike is in good shape for commuting
- How to map out a route that fits with your available time and comfort level
- How to “read” the street and ride safe under a range of conditions
