Bike Commuter Assistance

Anyone who would like advice or assistance with riding to work or school is encouraged to contact us at info@humbike.org. We can set up prospective bike commuters with experienced riders that can provide guidance about preparing your bike, what to wear, the best route to take, how long to allow, and what to do with your bike when you get there.
