For the love of cycling - author, athlete Laura Robinson shares stories & her award-winning book:
 
Cyclist Bikelist: The Book for Every Rider
 
Three-time Ontario cycling champion, 1979 Ontario and Canadian rowing champion and an avid cross-country skier and runner, Laura Robinson was raised in a family who encouraged her love of sports. Laura also has a deep commitment to social justice. She's seen how girls and women, indigenous people too, have often been treated as second-class athletes and citizens, and she hasn't shied away from speaking truth to power.
 
A member of Island Pathways will also introduce participants to the plan to create a Salish Sea Bike Trail Loop, including a Salt Spring section from Fulford to Vesuvius.
 
If you'd like to find out how to buy the right bike or how to make bike safety fun or learn more about the world of competitive sports, don't miss this reading and presentation. At the end of this family friendly event there will be time to look over any bikes that are on hand and maybe adjust some seats and pump up some tires to help get them ready for the cycling season.
 
A great way to celebrate Earth Day! Co-sponsored by the Salt Spring Public Library and Island Pathways.
