Over the next several weeks, Ride Report will be hosting Micromobility Fireside Chats, a webinar series you can enjoy from anywhere, and, most importantly, in the comfort of your own home.
These webinars will follow a presentation / live Q&A format with members of our team (and perhaps a few surprise guests!). We’ll talk about what’s happening in the world of micromobility, and address your burning questions.
We know the next few weeks or months might feel scary and isolating. Let’s come together to talk about how we can strengthen our community and our industry.
