Want to know the key to a sold-out event? Bikes! Evanston-Creekside Community Association sold out its Learn to Ride biking event on May 27th, 2018. This event included four different bike workshops for different skill levels, and taught people the importance of bike safety. Not to mention, bike riding is a great way to stay active!
The event was sold-out within the first 24 hours of being advertised, and over 80 people participated. Throughout the day, people continued to show up and ask if they could participate. When asked what they would do differently, the organizers only response was to make the event bigger! The $750 ActivateYYC grant was used to hire professionals to host the workshops.
