What to Do After a Bike Crash
Oct 3 @ 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm

We hope this never happens to you, but if you were hit by a car would you know what to do next? Do you go to the hospital? Do you take pictures of the crash? Should you call the driver’s insurance company? All of these questions and more will be answered at the What to Do After a Bike Crash Workshop with our featured speaker Bruce Deming aka The Bike Lawyer.

Bruce works exclusively with people who have been in bike crashes and is a wealth of knowledge about how to handle a crash if you are the one who has been hit or the one who has witnessed it. Join us on October 3rd to learn more about how to respond in the moments after a crash.

We hope you never need this information but we do want you to be prepared with this information if you need it.
