Our Learn to Ride class is fun, intuitive, and very successful! This class is for adults who have never ridden a bike before or have tried to learn and have not been successful. Our League certified instructors take students through a progressive curriculum, with the goal of riding with two pedals by the end of the session.

Our approach is fun and intuitive, but it also requires hard work. You will be riding for nearly three hours. We take breaks every hour. This class is for you if:

  • You are at least 18 years old;
  • You have never tried to learn how to ride a bike; or
  • You have tried to learn and have not been successful.

A rental bike and helmet for the day are included with your registration. Be sure to provide your height in feet and inches so that we can provide you with a bicycle that fits you.

Please wear comfortable clothes, and bring the following: water, snacks, and weather-appropriate outerwear.

Only students who have reserved space in the class may attend. Unfortunately, walk-up students cannot be accommodated.
