Has it been your life-long dream to learn how to ride a bike?

This series is for adults (age 18+) who have never learned to ride a bike, or who have not ridden a bike in some time. First, we’ll get you riding. Then we’ll give you skills and experience for riding on local trails and streets. Apply to take the level you need, or take all three!

Level 1: Adult Learn to Ride

You'll learn the basics of balancing, gliding, starting and stopping, pedaling, and steering - with the goal of riding by the end of the class! You will also learn to adjust a helmet for proper fit.

We supply a range of bikes to try out. Everyone will learn at their own pace.

With our gentle, effective “balance first” method many people learn to ride in one session. If you’re not 100% there, you’ll leave with a clear, low-stress way to continue to teach yourself! (You can also come to the next session.)

Class Dates: April 10, 16, and 29

Level 2: Skill Development & Trail Ride Clinic

Sign up for this 1.5-hour clinic if you have recently taken the Adult Learn to Ride class and would like to continue practicing basic skills like starting and stopping, turning, weaving, and gradual braking. You will continue building confidence and bike handling skills with a short ride on a nearby trail as a group.

Bring your own bike and helmet.

Class Dates: May 1 and 6

Level 3: On-Street Riding for Beginners

This class will introduce street riding rules and techniques and we'll practice handling your bike safely on city streets with a ride that includes intersections that present different challenges to practice maneuvering safely in traffic.

Bring your own bike and helmet.

Class Date: May 14
