How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love My Bike is a two part educational workshop and a spectacular group bike ride through Western Queens. Participants will leave with a new independence in traveling and a strong, conceptual understanding of bicycle design.
In the second workshop, participants will address specific mechanical problems with their own bikes and go through various hypothetical situations. Then we will personalize the bikes (without causing detriment to their functionality) — painting, scratching, hand sewing, and accessorizing will be covered. Afterwards, we’ll celebrate with a group bike ride through Western Queens. Tour guides will provide historical perspective on the neighborhood, treating participants to eclectic stories long past and oddities easily missed.
