Adult 55+ Learn to Ride Class
Oct 25 @ 8:00 am – 11:00 am

Staff from BikeArlington will lead this 3-hour class, designed to teach adults how to ride a bike. Start by learning balance, then each rider proceeds at his or her own pace through starting/stopping, pedaling and turning. The technique is fun, intuitive and very successful, but it takes hard work! Please wear comfortable clothes and bring along a water bottle and snack. Bikes and helmets will be provided. This event takes place indoors. Please register by Oct. 18.

Bike Classes: Basic Skills Clinic
Oct 26 @ 10:00 am – 1:00 pm

New this year, the basic skills clinic is designed to give you more opportunities to sharpen your riding skills. So if you’ve completed the Learn to Ride class and want more practice time or are simply looking to improve your riding skills, this class is for you. Certified instructors will lead drills, including starting, stopping, turning, weaving, and gradual breaking.

Students should be able to balance and ride on two pedals.

Students should bring their own bike and helmet. If you’re unable to bring your own bike, email education@waba.org or call 202-518-0524 at least 48 hours prior to the clinic.
