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 - including shifting and braking - 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. We provide bikes and helmets. Participants under 18 years old must have a registered accompanying adult.
