$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'd love to see a WPA style painted mural there that celebrates the communities between Albany and Voorheesville that the trail connects, with a nod to the different kinds of transportation (train, now bike, feet) that trail has supported.
