Our Better Bike Share Partnership team joined the Office of Adult Education to plan out a reunion in order to connect all participants from all the Digital Skill and Bicycle Thrills (DSBT) cohorts in one big community building to celebrate each group’s success.

The Digital Skills and Bicycle Thrills program helps participants learn digital and computer skills while also learning about biking safety in the city using Indego. The program lets participants have the opportunity to join in on a group ride to put what they’ve learned about urban biking to practice.
