SARATOGA SPRINGS — May is bike month and more bicycles are on the streets now than at any point in recent history. The “stay at home order” and its associated challenges have many of us looking for healthy ways to move our bodies and relax our minds. This is where bicycles come in... as transportation, recreation and relaxation.
Recently, Palette Cafe has started up a weekly “Bike Talk” on Friday evenings as a way to educate, inspire and engage the community in all things bicycle related. Interested in finding out where to ride? Concerned about how to stay safe on the roads? How do I get my bike ready to ride?
Palette Cafe along with co-hosts Maddy Zanetti, cargo bike-riding mother & dog/“porch package” transporter, and Ian Klepetar, founding director of Bicycle Benefits, will be welcoming new guests each week to cover specific topics which are of great interest to the listener/viewer.
Viewers can send questions and comments in as part of the Facebook Live forum. On May 15, Karen Karabell, Cycling Savvy, will host from fear to freedom, how to stay safe out there. On May 22-Evan Pack will share quick fix-it tips from a professional mechanic.
The bike talk will occur every Friday at 6 p.m. until May 29. Check out their Facebook Page atfacebook.com/events/649023728991037 or the Palette Website: www.thepalettecafe.com/event/bike-talk/all/ for more information.
