Portlander, Marissa Simoes is off to Armenia, where she will spend the next 27 months as part of the Peace Corps.  In Armenia, a bicycle will be her primary mode of transportation.  She hadn’t ridden a bike since she was young and needed a lesson.  Who best to teach her?  Fred Robie, Bicycle Coalition of Maine board member, Bike Swap leader and veteran bike safety instructor.

Watch this movie, “Before you pedal off, how to be safe on your bicycle”, where Fred teaches Marissa to ride again.
