CIT (Confidence in Traffic)

 

Are gas prices getting you down?  One good way to save money on gas, reduce your carbon footprint, and increase your own health and well being is to ride a bike- for fun, to the store, to work, or wherever.

WashCo Bikes is your local source of affordable bikes, parts, and service at our Community Bike Center at 137 NE 3rd in Hillsboro.

If you are nervous about riding on the streets, WashCo Bikes also offers our Confidence in Traffic clinics to teach you the Five Levels of Crash Prevention.  You can eliminate 90% of crashes with the first three levels!  We can also teach you basic bike maintenance, give riding tips, etc.  Class sizes are limited, so don’t wait to register.  For more information, see our website- www.washcobikes.org/programs/education, or email classes@washcobikes.org
