Learn to Ride & Bike Practice Session Package

Register for both a Learn to Ride – Adults class and Bike Practice Session, scheduled one week apart at certain Bike Ed Centers.

Overview

Our free package of a Learn to Ride – Adults class and a Bike Practice Session are designed to get you riding with confidence and competence after just two classes, two hours each, a week apart.
Register below for the two classes at once, making registration easy and ensuring that you won’t get closed out of Bike Practice Session.

In order to really take advantage of our Learn to Ride class, participants should practice their new skills soon after. Since that may prove difficult for someone who doesn’t have a bike or a safe place to practice, we have packaged together our proven Learn to Ride – Adults class with our new Bike Practice Session, scheduled one week apart at some of our Bike Ed Centers.

 

Learn to Ride students learn how to balance, pedal, start, stop, and steer a bike, as well as adjust a helmet for proper fit. Most people learn to ride in one session, but even if they don’t, they’ll leave equipped with an easy, low-stress way to teach themselves—or, they can join us for another free class!

 

Our Bike Practice session is designed for students to further practice the skills they’ve acquired in Learn to Ride. Remember, practice makes perfect!
