Cyclists are invited to a Gear Talk workshop hosted by Capital Metropolitan Transportation Authority from 5:30 to 8 p.m. March 3 at Cycleast Bike Shop, 1619 East Cesar Chavez Street. (And read my article about taking your bike on the bus and train.)

Participants will learn about the system’s cycling amenities, which include special “boxes” where you can park your bike, how to use bike+transit facilities and share thoughts about future improvements.
