Bike Classes: Basic Skills Clinic
Nov 9 @ 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.

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.
