Bike Practice Session
A 2 hour practice session (not a Learn-to-Ride Class) for adults & mature teens who need to build confidence in their bike control skills – starting, steering and stopping.
Bike Practice Session is a 2 hour, supervised practice session*, not a structured class. Participants can practice on one of Bike New York’s loaner bikes (if you register in advance), though we encourage using your own bike. We provide a safe, controlled learning area and the watchful eyes of Bike New York’s trained coaches, who will offer tips on how to effectively stop, start and steer a bike. Bike Practice Session is intended for recent Learn to Ride participants, but we welcome anyone who isn’t confident with their bike control skills. Questions? Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
