The keys are fine-tuned to reflect tones playing African societies. Each key sits above a resonator with a vibrating membrane to amplify the sound and add a unique “buzz” to the music.”

In addition to covers from Rush, Iron Maiden, Metallica, Black Sabbath and the like, they play a few original songs, loosely focused on what their parents are currently doing to the planet.”

Family Biking Workshop June 28th

green-bikeFamily Bikers (and aspiring bikers) –

Are you interested in biking more with your family, but not sure how to get started? Or have you been doing it awhile, and want an infusion of excitement and information? Are you tired of waiting in the line of cars during preschool/school drop-off/pick-up? Do you have questions about safety, equipment, practicality, or whether you can “do it”? If so, then this highly participatory 3 hour workshop is for you!

Bring your questions, concerns and curiosity for a lively session of information and discussion. Learn: What are the biggest hazards, and how to avoid them. What equipment is out there and what are the pluses and minuses of each. What to do about hills and rain. What resources are available to support you on your journey, and more!

Taught by veteran family-biker Morgan Scherer in an in-home setting, this session is relaxed and supportive of all questions, levels of fitness, and goals. Get the information and support you need to make the best transportation decisions for your family. For the last half hour we will be outside looking at different family biking setups, and trying them out. Bring your helmet if you have one (there will also be helmets available to borrow).
