After much deliberation, Bike Walk Connecticut has decided to take this year off from running the Discover Hartford Bicycle Tour. We'll be refocusing on our core mission--advocacy and education, and as part of that, our Complete Streets implementation project--all long term efforts to make Connecticut a better place to bike and walk, every single day. No other organization does this on a statewide basis, so we invite you to support this important work with your membership or donation. Your support really does make a difference. Thank you!
As an added bonus for registering for the 2013 Discover Hartford Bicycle Tour, Bike Walk Connecticut is offering a free Flat Tire Clinic on Sunday, September 15 at 4 p.m.
There is limited space in the clinic, therefore pre-registration is required. The instructor, Tony Cherolis, will demonstrate a basic bicycle tire change and discuss the steps involved. As desired the attendees will have the opportunity to practice the steps of a tire change on a bicycle wheel (and optional bicycle) they bring with them. The course will be outside, just like you are changing a tire on the side of a road. The best time to practice a tire change is when you "aren't" on the side of the road—and that's what this clinic is—practice.

Bike Walk CT's Discover Hartford Tour got a nice shout out in an editorial in the Hartford Courant. It's great to be promoted as well organized in the same column that extols the ING Marathon. Read the editorial at http://bit.ly/R4Wpfm .
