More joy, less stress! Riding your bike doesn’t have to be stressful. Join us for a morning of skills, confidence, and community building. We’ll spend some time on a few specific bike handling skills, then go for a short ride and talk about strategies for riding in different road, bike lane, and trail situations. Bring questions! By the time you head home, you’ll feel more confident, comfortable, and happy on your bike. Plus it’s a blast.

This is going to be fun!

Something for everyone

Whether you’ve just learned to ride or you’ve been bike commuting for years, we’ve got new things to share with you. Our experienced League Certified Instructors will make sure that you’re working on skills that match your level of comfort and experience on your bike.

Is this class right for you?

  • Do you know how to ride a bicycle?
  • Are you comfortable riding a bike for at least 30 minutes?
  • Are you able to start and stop your bike in a controlled manner?

If you answered “no” to any of the above questions, then a Learn to Ride or a Basic Skills Clinic is best for you.

What to bring:

  • Questions! We love them! Do you have a particular bike situation you’ve always wondered about? That’s what we’re here for.
  • A bike, helmet, water and a snack.
  • Flat pedals. Toe clips, clipless pedals, or other gizmos that attach your feet to your pedals aren’t recommended. If you don’t know what this means, your pedals will work fine.

What does it cost?

Ten bucks! What a deal!

Drop-ins are free! But space is limited, so we recommend you register below ahead of time to hold your spot! Otherwise, walk up to any class at least 15 minutes before we start so we can have you fill out a little bit of paperwork.

Are you a WABA or Capital Bikeshare member? Then the class is free. Email or call 202-518-0524 x221 for a coupon.
