Whether you've just learned to ride or are a regular cyclist, we've got a class for you! Classes are a combination of teacher presentations and on-bike exercises in a safe location, followed by a skill-appropriate group ride. Every class covers helmet fit, basic bike fit, and how to do an ABC quick check. Make sure to bring your bike, helmet, and close-toed shoes. Anyone under the age of 12 must also have an adult register and attend with them.
