March Resource: Mud Season Tips

CCV resource advisor Connie Beal offers up some ideas for making the most out of mud season.

The potholes are beginning to show themselves as mud season arrives. Did you know that Good News Garage provides year-round market-rate car repair? If you meet specific income guidelines, they may be able to help you with low-cost or free car repair. See Connie for more information about the Jumpstart repair program.

Cabin fever?
Get out and learn about reliable resources in your community. The Community Resource Fair, sponsored by the Vermont Adult Education Council, features over 20 providers. It’s free and open to the public. Tuesday, April 11th, 10 am to 2 pm at Vermont Adult Learning (110 Cherry Street in Burlington)

Need help getting your bike ride-ready?
Check out Bike Recycle Vermont’s upcoming workshops and classes. Whether you’re new to biking in Vermont or a veteran cyclist, Bike Recycle has something for everyone. Learn about their free and reduced-cost bicycles for eligible households and their youth apprenticeship program.

Freeride, a Montpelier-based bike cooperative, offers recycled bikes and repair help as well.

Don’t let mud season get you down! Vermont is a fantastic place for walking, running, or riding a bike. Whether you love long country rides, use your bike for daily errands, or simply like your kids to get around independently, Vermont communities are great for walking and biking. Connect with Local Motion in Burlington to explore your statewide options for biking and walking.

Connie is available to CCV faculty, staff, and students. She is at CCV Winooski on Thursdays from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. in Room 211D inside the Learning Center. She’s also available by phone or email if you’re not in the Burlington area: 802-881-4218/
