We offer hundreds of free classes and programs for adults throughout the year at over a dozen Community Bike Education Centers and bike shops across the five boroughs. Pick the one that’s right for you.


A class is a bike education session (1-3 hours) designed to teach you a particular skill or set of skills that will help you cycle with confidence. Depending on what you’ll be learning, your class sessions will be held either on a bike at one of our Community Bike Education Centers or in a classroom setting.


Ready to make the leap and enjoy the city on two wheels? Our free Adult bike education programs provide aspiring cyclists with the structure and support of a learning community, guided by knowledgeable instructors. Over the course of 4 weekly sessions, students will work through Bike New York’s core curriculum of classes and take their skills to the streets.
