Join bicycle event planning "experts" Carl Larson and Shawn Granton as they go over the process, step by step, of creating bicycle events from scratch. Planning, logistics, promotions, and more will be covered.

By the end of this workshop, we will have posted a ride to the Pedalpalooza calendar!

It's your chance to get together with other bike nerds, catch up with old friends, make new friends, talk about weekend plans, go for an easy ride (chillin') and drink some coffee (swillin'). It's also a good chance to get back on the bike if you haven't been riding for a while, or bring friends who you want to introduce to the bikey life (we'll try not to scare them off...).
