Everyday thousands of Chicagoan’s use a Divvy for several purposes including getting themselves to and from work, school, to meet up with friends, or to go for a pleasant bike ride. When looking at it from a sustainable point of view, the Divvy is a wonderful system for cutting the amount of emissions released into the air from cars and public transit. However, when winter comes around in the city, despite this wonderful benefit, bike riders need to take their safety into consideration because bike riding can become dangerous. With ice, wind, and dropping temperatures, it can be rough and sometimes even unsafe for bikers who are not properly trained. In order to keep bikers safe, the Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum is offering a FREE Divvy winter biking class. From 10am-11am on Saturday, Decmeber 7th, trained bikers will be conducting lessons for city bike riders on how to handle the winter months safely. This class is not just for the everyday Divvy rider but also those who own their own bikes. While not all Chicago weather permits bikers to travel around, the Peggy Notebaert museum wishes for bikers to learn that they do not need to completely give up biking until spring comes.
