Bike Classes: Learn to Ride
May 11 @ 10:00 am – 1:00 pm

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.
