$20? Albany Bicycle Coalition, are you getting this?


Hi everyone,
Sadly I have to postpone this class. I'm sure it will be funny to me later that I have to cancel due to an injury from a cyclyng crash. I was bikejoring with my happy black lab and we had a crash. He's just fine, and I have a broken wrist.
I'll be offering this class again in the spring, but feel free to check out other wellness classes
i'm teaching through my website at www.yourbodyawake.com

Tammy - Sorry, and get well soon.

I was very negative about the road diet when it was announced but I really love it and am excited to see it continue all the way to Lark. I eat my words!
