Basic Skills Clinic
Sunday, October 15, 2023, 10:00 AM
Jones Point Park, Alexandria
Basic Skills Clinics are the next step for adult participants (18+) who have recently taken a Learn to Ride class or who know how to ride a bike, but have not been on one in some time. Basic Skills Clinics focus on skills such as turning, shifting, braking gradually, and weaving and will help you develop the fundamental bike handling skills necessary to ride confidently! Our experienced Instructors will observe where you are at and will provide tailored instruction to help you progress to the next level. Participants move at their own pace and are encouraged to continue practicing these skills at home.
