Happening at Edwardsville Il.
 
Bike Smart - Edwardsville on Saturday, July 7

Join us on July 7 from 8:00 a.m. - noon at the Land of Goshen Farmers' Market in downtown Edwardsville, IL for helmet fitting, bike education, and mechanical safety checks for your bike! Helmets First will be there offering 50 free helmets for kids. When the free helmets run out you can buy one for just $7! In addition St. Louis Recumbent Bicycles will provide a bicycle mechanic to check your bike and make minor repairs or adjustments and help you learn how to check your bike before you ride. We'll have experienced riders on hand to answer your questions about bike commuting, riding safely in traffic, and your rights and responsibilities on the roads.

Just thought you might want to know.

Good idea. When the school police officers see kids without helmets riding their bikes, they pull them over and give them a ticket (free helmet coupon).

Are you going, Jumbo? It sounds like a wonderful opportunity for you to learn from other cyclists, and more importantly, meet them.

I am thinking about it
 
I might. It does sound interesting.

Do it. Hell may be other people, but riding with other cyclists is great fun. The trick is to avoid the problems I encountered - mainly snooty roadies. These blog posts might be of interest:

Where is Edwardsville?

Way South
 
It is way south, close to St. Louis.

I will probably be riding on the MC trails around there that day. I am not sure how to get to d-town Edwardsville from the trail, though. Probably not hard and I might look into it.
