Terrapin Beer Company has partnered with Bikes & Beer to be part of its Social Distancing Ride. The virtual ride will take place during the month of April, and each registered rider gets a rider kit including two beer tokens to be used when the tasting room in Athens reopens! More information.
This webinar is about the issue of bike shops being designated as essential businesses.
Scheduled speakers include:
- Pete Piccolo from Bicycle Colorado, who successfully amended their state’s order to say the bicycle repair is essential.
- Galen Mook from MassBike, who is currently working to bring additional clarity to Massachusetts’s order, but has already clarified that local communities can deem bicycle repair as essential.
- Representatives from bicycle retailer Landry’s Bicycles and Chain Reaction Bicycles, who have been working to stay open and provide essential services to those who use bicycles as transportation.
- PeopleForBikes who are working with the bicycle industry on this and other issues. They have an excellent spreadsheet of state orders affecting bicycling and numerous resources on industry efforts.
The Bike Walk Macon team is working remotely. To break up the day, they walk, bike, and get some fresh air while practicing social distancing. Join their staff, board members, and local community members as they stroll, run, or ride in the next couple of weeks around Macon and Facebook live our adventures on the Bike Walk Macon page. If you would like to lead a virtual bike ride or walk, call Koryn Young, Engagement Coordinator at 917-412-4661 or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
