Basic Skills Clinic
Saturday, November 20, 2021, 10:00 AM — Four Mile Run Park Plaza
Basic Skills Clinics offer participants the opportunity to practice basic bike handling skills in the comfort and safety of a wide-open, flat parking lot. Instructors assist with skills such as starting, stopping, turning, weaving and gradual braking while offering individualized feedback and guidance. Participants progress at their own pace. Instructors will provide more advanced instruction if needed! The goal of this clinic is to be able to ride in a safe and controlled manner. Have any Questions? Email us at email@example.com.
This class is for you if:
You have recently taken a Learn to Ride class and were riding with 2 pedals by the end of class.
