Bike Classes: City Cycling
Nov 9 @ 10:00 am – 1:00 pm

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.
