Learn to Ride: The Freedom a Bicycle Can Provide

We just received this great and very nice testimonial about Bike New York’s Learn to Ride classes from Robin Lester-Kenton of Bedford-Stuyvesant.


Robin’s son Simon broke through at a class in May held at the Harold Ickes Playground in Red Hook!


“We are so grateful for Bike New York’s FREE Learn to Ride classes for kids! As a kid growing up in the ‘burbs, biking was a huge part of my childhood – it is important to me that my kids experience the freedom a bicycle can provide. It’s been a challenge to find the time and space to practice with them living in NYC, and having this opportunity to work with great instructors on a closed course was the perfect solution.


It took my son three classes to pick it up, but we could absolutely tell once he was ready. The look of joy on his face when he took off for the first time is something I’ll never forget. I hope every NYC parent learns about this amazing resource and the supportive staff at Bike New York! People don’t believe me when I tell them it’s completely free!”
