Beginning Bike Skills: One-on-One Instruction

Cycling

Description: New to cycling? Recently learned to ride a bike or returning to the saddle after a while off your bike? If you have recently learned to ride a bike and want to become more confident with your basic bike handling skills, this is the class for you! Our instructors will start by teaching you proper bike fit, what to bring with you on rides, basic bicycle safety concepts, and fundamental bike handling skills. Then you'll head out on a dedicated bicycle path/trail for a short ride to practice your skills and gain confidence. This class is designed to be a stepping stone between our How to Ride a Bike Class, and our Introduction to Road/Mountain Biking classes. Prerequisite: participants should know how to stop and start, and balance a bike while pedaling. Those ready to learn about riding on surface roads with light traffic or trail riding should check out our next level classes: Introduction to Road Cycling/Mountain Biking. We provide bikes and helmets for adults. Children must bring their own bikes and helmets. Participants under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent or responsible adult.

Skills you'll learn:

  • Prepare students to take a ride on bike paths on their own
  • Learn basic bicycle handling skills, with a focus on hazard avoidance and riding technique
  • Learn basic preparedness and bicycle safety. (ABC Safety Check, Helmets, Tools)
