Ride of the Police Chief of Capitol Heights, MD


Bike with the Chief
Wedneday July 23, 2014 (every other Wednesday), 6:00 PM
Capitol Heights Elementary School
601 Suffolk Avenue, Capitol Heights, MD

Capitol Heights needs the support of as many bikers as possible.  This is not a ride for speed and most of bikers receiving this e-mail may not break a sweat.  This is a ride to help influence cycling in Capitol Heights, Maryland. 

Every new (safe) cyclist on the road means;
1. One less crazy driver with no patience
2. One friendlier person who is willing to help a cyclist in trouble
3. A new cycling buddy
This list could go on. 

Sometimes it's a good thing to ride for a cause.  Black Women Bike urges you and your family to attend.

Did you miss our surviving the streets of DC?


On April 26, 2014 we hosted "Surviving the Streets on a Bike". Attendees learned about proper lane positions, "taking the lane", how to navigate intersections, and how to bike on multilane roads.  After a two hour seminar, attendees had an opportunity to practice on a pre-determined route.
