Learn to Ride

Course description

We are sold out for out last lessons of 2020! Thanks for a great Learn to Ride season and we'll see you next year!

Has it been your life-long dream to learn how to ride a bike? Today is your lucky day! Start here if you are looking to master balance, braking and pedaling and start on your wonderful biking journey. 

We offer one-on-one lessons with a Learn to Ride instructor, using a tried-and-true technique that will have you riding in no time. The lesson lasts for 45 min to 1 hour and proper helmet fit is included. 

Our lessons are geared toward adults and youth over the age of 10. If you have a child who is right around that edge and would like some advice in teaching them yourself feel free to reach out to the contact info at the bottom!

We recommend that you book lessons at least a week apart. This gives your muscles time to get used to these new movements and gives you time to practice. Outside practice is very important for your progress in learning how to ride a bike. 

 

Covid-19 Considerations:

To take extra precautions during this time we are asking that students come with their own facemask to wear throughout the lesson. The lessons take place outdoors. Your instructor will be wearing a mask and the bikes and helmets are wiped down between lessons. 

How to prepare:

After you register for your lesson, Amy will reach out to you both to see if you would like to borrow a bike an helmet and for other information. 

You may also bring your own bike or a bike that you are currently borrowing. 

The best way to prepare for your lesson is to borrow a bike to practice on. As long as both you can touch both feet flat on the ground and it has working brakes, it is a great bike to practice on. While keeping your eyes up, slowly push yourself around feeling how the bike balances beneath you. Don't stress about it, just have fun! The more time you spend on this the quicker your balance will improve, and the more prepared you will be for your lesson.
