We hope this never happens to you, but if you were hit by a car would you know what to do next? Do you go to the hospital? Do you take pictures of the crash? Should you call the driver’s insurance company? All of these questions and more will be answered at the What to Do After a Bike Crash Workshop with our featured speaker Bruce Deming aka The Bike Lawyer.
Bruce works exclusively with people who have been in bike crashes and is a wealth of knowledge about how to handle a crash if you are the one who has been hit or the one who has witnessed it. Join us on October 3rd to learn more about how to respond in the moments after a crash.
We hope you never need this information but we do want you to be prepared with this information if you need it.
This class is designed for adults who never learned to ride a bicycle or have tried before but feel like they need more instruction. Certified instructors employ a special technique for teaching balance, steering, starting, stopping, and pedaling with the goal of having you ride on two wheels by the end of the class. It’s fun and intuitive.
Registration is required to attend, and costs for Arlington residents is $10 and non-Arlington residents is $85. A bike and helmet are included with your registration.
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.
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 email@example.com or call 202-518-0524 at least 48 hours prior to the clinic.
This is a great class for riders of all skill levels. If you’re an experienced rider, there are skills to learn. If you’re new, we’ll help you master fundamentals. Certified instructors will help you learn to deal with traffic, communicate effectively and master the transition from road to trail and back again. You’ll also work on bike handling maneuvers and ride along the local bike trails or bike lanes on a group ride.
Students should know how to ride a bike, be able to ride for at least 30 minutes, and be comfortable starting and stopping on a bike.
Students are required to bring their own bike and helmet.
