These classes are for adults or teens who have either not yet learned how to ride a bike, or learned a long time ago but want a refresher on the basics of balancing, pedaling and steering. Our trained instructors are friendly, patient, and will help you get off to a great start in a secure, non-judgmental environment.
A working bicycle and helmet are required in order to participate in this class, but if you do not have your own and are unable to borrow them then we can provide a low cost rental for you at the class. Please review the class registration form below for details. Pre-registration is required for all of our learn-to-ride classes.
