Citi Bike Street Skills Classes have something to offer cyclists of all abilities. If you’re interested in taking advantage of New York City’s bike share program, but want to do so with a better understanding of where you belong on the road and how to conduct yourself when you’re on it, our Citi Bike Street Skills Class is for you.
Citi Bike Street Skills Classes are open to adults and mature teens who are at least 14 years old, but note that you must be at least 16 years old to use Citi Bike.
